This recipe is low cal, double duty, with enormous flavor! It's a Crock Pot recipe too so it tastes like you've been slaving all day. :) I also use this pork in my Cuban sandwiches.

Juicy and moist, this pork tenderloin is a flavorful dinner. The peppers add a bit of heat and smokiness which pairs well with the beautiful citrus flavors. It's so easy to make too. We served it over rice and spooned the delicious juices on top. So good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
