Crock Pot Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

If you’re looking for a lean protein and are tired of chicken, pork tenderloin is a healthy choice! Seasoned perfectly and seared well before cooking in the crock pot and you’ve got an easy weeknight meal.

 

This recipe is an adaption of my Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken. Just like that recipe, this one does not disappoint and provides a nice variety for dinner!

 

Always let your meat rest a good five to ten minutes before slicing. You’ll have a delicious and juicy meal!

    I made this last night and invited our grandson and wife over for supper, never having made this before. They LOVED it and so did we. They went back for seconds. We served with rice and green beans and green pea salad. I am not a fan of balsamic vinegar, but it was just enough flavor, not to be overwhelming. Thank you and I shall be following you.

    Why does it say cooking time 4 hours in the sidebar when in the recipe it’s 3 hours in the crock pot, and only a little bit of time to saute to brown it? I’m going to make this tonight, and want to make sure the 3 hours is correct.
