This is quick and easy to prepare and cook in the slow cooker. Grease the slow cooker with a little oil or use a cooking bag to make cleanup easier.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 7 hours

Total Time: 7 hours, 10 minutes


  • 2 pork tenderloins, about 1 pound each
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons grainy Dijon mustard or country-style
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water


Wash and trim the pork and pat dry; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Place pork in the slow cooker. Combine garlic, mustard, honey, brown sugar, vinegar, and thyme; pour over the pork. Turn pork to coat thoroughly. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours, or on HIGH for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours.

Remove pork to a plate, cover with foil, and keep warm. Pour the juices into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until reduced by about one-third. Combine the cornstarch and cold water; whisk into the reduced juices and cook for 1 minute longer. Serve pork sliced with the thickened juices.

Serves 6.

Excellent, Member Neeter302

Made this today with baked sweet potatoes, hoppin' John rice and cheddar biscuits. It was tender, juicy and flavorful. My husband loved it. I did brown the meat in a hot cast iron skillet before placing in crockpot which I believe helped retain juices. Before serving I stirred some cornstarch into a cup of chicken broth, added it to the pot drippings and it made a very savory gravy that was a great addition to the meat and rice. Will definitely make this again, easy and delish !
