Slow Cooker Apple and Onion Pork Tenderloin

Side note here for those of you who care about my fashion posts: Today’s outfit post will be delayed until tomorrow as Michael took our good camera with him to Vegas and only left me with the spare who’s battery was dead. It is charging now, so hopefully I will be able to get some photos when I get home today (because I am finally wearing a dress!)

Onto the recipe:


About 2 lbs. pork tenderloin – but I’m guessing this would be good with any pork or chicken really

2 apples, cut into chunks

1 onion, cut into chunks

1/2 cup white wine

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

3 Tbsp. gluten free soy sauce

1 tsp. powdered ginger

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Onion Salt

Garlic powder


Salt and Pepper


Put apples and onions in bottom of slow cooker (I do all chopping the night before and just put pot in fridge)

Put tenderloins on top of the onions and apples

Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, onion salt, garlic salt and thyme

In a bowl mix together soy sauce, white wine, apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard and pour over tenderloins (I promise it looks a whole lot better than this when you come home! )

Cook on low all day and come home to this

Then enjoy! Michael told me this was his favorite pork yet! I served along with soy-ginger green beans (just sauteed frozen green beans with 1 Tbsp. butter, a few splashes of Tamari sauce (gluten free soy sauce), salt and a sprinkle of ginger.

This is a lovely crock pot dish with tenderloin. It’s nice to find a pork dish for the crockpot that is not pulled pork for a change. I also enjoy that the ingrediant list is small and this was easy to prepare quickly in the morning. Thanks!


    I agree Lisa, small ingredient lists are great! Glad you liked it!


I am making this for dinner tonight…making enough to have leftovers for work next week. I may even freeze it in lunch size packets. Thanks for the recipe!


    That’s a good idea Mom, I should make a big pot of these for lunches too!

Thanks for this! Have been on Paleo for a few weeks so was looking for some slow cooker recipes… I don’t have any Tamari though 🙁 I know it’s a Paleo/gluten free staple so have been meaning to get some. I’m gonna try it without and hopefully it’ll still be yummy! Gonna throw some leeks in there too.

I’m about to make this for the third time and every time I swear it’s the best dish I’ve ever had. Once I take the pork out of the crockpot and attempt to cut it (it’s so juicy and tender that it just crumbles) only half of it survives until dinner time. It’s unbelievably good. Best crockpot recipe I’ve ever tried.


    Thanks John, that is so nice to hear! Glad you are enjoying : )

Is the ginger only for the green
beans?? I’m going to make this this evening 🙂 How many does it serve?


    I honestly can’t remember! I’m sure you could throw some in the pot and it would be good too. Serving depends on how big your pork loin is but I would say about 4.


I need to double this recipe (having a bigger group)……can I do it all in one crockpot and if so how long would I need to cook it? Support

    Hi Nancy, as long as your Crockpot is large enough to fit double the recipe it will be fine, I often fill mine quite full. No need to extend cooking time, I would suggest cooking on low 8-10 hours.


What kind of apples do you recommend.


    I usually use Gala, but I think any would be good!


Can you cook on high for a quicker cooking time?


Just wondering how many hours you would need to cook it for? My pork is 2.25lbs. Can’t wait to make this. 🙂 Support

    In the slow cooker I would suggest 8 hours on low or 5-6 on high


Ingredient list says garlic powder and directions say garlic salt which is correct? Support

    Either work fine! I probably used garlic salt


I don’t like soy sauce. Can it be left off?




Is this tenderloin or loin? I see pork loin in the picture and tenderloin in the crockpot.


    You can use either! Although I’d recommend pork loin over tenderloin for the crockpot

Can I use a frozen pork loin and what would be the time adjustment be?


    You should be able too, I would cook it for 8-10 hours on low. I’ve never done it from frozen, but have done chicken and it is fine.


I’m going to try this one, but have to tell you that clicking on print results in all the comments being printed too, in all 8 pages. Thanks.


    Sorry about that Joan, hmmm, not sure how to change it but maybe when you print just select the first page to print
