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


  • 1Rinse 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.
  • 2In 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.
  • 3Lay 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.
  • 4Cook 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.
  • 5When 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.
  • 6Making 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.
  • 7Enjoy! Your house will smell wonderful!
