This is a spin off from the 3-Ingredient Crockpot Ranch Pork Chops, which uses a packet, or homemade, Ranch Dressing. Ranch dressing has dried dill, dried parsley, dried diced onion, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper (those are the basic ingredients), so in this, I stepped it up to fresh dill, fresh garlic, fresh onion, and used pork loin instead of chops. And it is tender, juicy, and delicious.

How to Make Pork Loin (Slow Cooker)

Step-by-Step

  1. I am going to use use fresh onion, garlic, and dill, and no added salt.
  2. Tesco has excellent pork loin, can get 3-4 thick slices from each piece. Here is the 6 pieces I am going to use for this recipe.
  3. Place the diced onion in the bottom of your slow cooker. Place a layer of pork loin, then sprinkle with half the pepper, parsley, garlic, and dill. Place another layer of pork loin and sprinkle the remaining pepper, parsley, garlic, and dill.
  4. Prepare your chicken gravy, I use Lobo brand (Thai product which is very good), or use leftover gravy, let the gravy cool for a few minutes, then pour over the pork loin, do worry if the dill sort of floats away in places, it is all cooked together.
  5. Set the cooker to Low setting for 6 to 8 hours, cover and cook for 6 hours without removing the cover, then check the tenderness. Time is variable with thickness of the slices. for thin, less than 1 inch check at 6 hours, for 1 inch check at 7 hours, for 1 1/2 inch check at 7 and you may need to cook another hour. If not tender, cook for another hour and check again. Once tender, if not serving right away, just switch the cooker to Warm setting.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, or pasta, and spoon the gravy over everything, add a vegetable for a side and you have a complete meal. I served this with homemade rice a roni. Enjoy.
