Pork Tenderloin W/ Garlic & Glaze

Cassie *


When I find Pork loin on sale, I stock up on it. Well, this is one of my all time favorite ways of making it.

A dear friend of mine, no longer with us, gave me this recipe years ago..I have made it so many times I have it memorized. I changed it of course to suit our taste.

The garlic permeates the meat, and the glaze is fantastic.

I hope you try it, and enjoy it as much as we do..

How to Make Pork Tenderloin W/ Garlic & Glaze


  1. Rinse pork loin and dry.

    Cut about 4 - 5 slits on top of the loin; about 1 1/2 inches deep. Stuff a clove of garlic in each slit.
  2. In a small bowl; mix the seasonings and minced garlic. Rub the pork well with the spice mix.

    It is now ready to go into the slow cooker.
  3. Lay the pork loin inside the slow cooker. Pour a small amount of water, just enough to cover the bottom of the crock. Make sure not to wash the seasoning from the meat in the process.
  4. Cook on high setting for an hour. Then turn down to low, cook for 3 -4 hours longer. Or cook on low for 5 - 6 hours. My low setting gets pretty hot. ( Mine took a total of 1 hour on high, and 3 hours on low). So, keep checking when basting for doneness.

    Baste the loin every half hour or so, with the glaze.
  5. When meat is finished, remove it from the slow cooker, and let it rest for 5 minutes or so. Slice and plate, and serve with remaining glaze.
  6. Making the glaze:

    Mix all of the ingredients in a small saucepan; over medium heat, stirring frequently so the sauce does not burn.

    When sauce comes to a simmer..stir until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  7. Enjoy! Your house will smell wonderful!
