harvest pork tenderloin

Last week I planned on making a pork tenderloin. {Insert moment of honesty here} I have never made pork tenderloin. Mr. Miller comes from a pork loving family and I didn't grow up eating that many pork products other than bacon and the occasional bit of sausage.

OK so back to the tenderloin, I was digging around in the fridge, pantry and spice cupboard to figure out how to address this little piggy and this is what I came up with.

harvest pork tenderloin

2 - 3 lb pork tenderloin

1/2 cup apple juice

1 bag of baby carrots

1 small apple, sliced

2 cloves garlic

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar

  1. Rinse your pork and set aside.

  2. Get your faithful crock pot out and spray with Pam.

  3. Mix in crock your apple juice, garlic, soy sauce and brown sugar

  4. Lay piggy on top.

  5. Put carrots around and lay the apple on top.

  6. Cover and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours.

  7. Serve with Rice, Risotto or whatever you want!


We had ours with a garlic risotto, let’s just say the junior members in the family loved the pork but hated the risotto.  We also shared one of our last harvest of these.


This tenderloin was so moist.  I ended up just shredding it and it was a hit!  Enjoy.
