Our lives seem to get much busier in the spring, which means I am using my slow cooker even more! This recipe for Apple Cider Pork Tenderloin is perfect for busy nights, since it goes together quickly and is ready when you are.
To make this moist roast I simply put some onions and apples in the crockpot, and then placed two pork tenderloins on top. I added some spices and poured in apple cider vinegar and apple cider, and let it cook all day. My mom makes a pork roast like this, but she always used beer instead of cider as the cooking liquid. I thought cider would work just as well, and sure enough it did!
- 2 apples
- 1 onion
- 2 pork tenderloin
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon rosemary
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/8 cup apple cider vinegar

Slice the onion and apples, and put in the bottom of a slow cooker.
Place the pork tenderloin on top of the apples and onions.
Sprinkle the tenderloin with salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary.
Mince two cloves of garlic and sprinkle on top.
Pour the apple cider vinegar and the apple cider over the whole thing, and cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.

I added some more apples to garnish the dish before I served it, and it was moist and flavorful. The apples and cider added just a little bit of sweetness to the pork. My family loved the meal, and I am sure I will be making it again soon, because it is so easy to do. What are your favorite slow cooker recipes?
