Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin about 1 lb
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch

Instructions

  • If your pork tenderloin is longer than your slow cooker, cut it in half crosswise (so you have two shorter pieces that will fit inside). 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the broth, honey, balsamic vinegar, ketchup and corn starch and pour into the slow cooker.
  • In a small bowl, combine garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, onion powder and paprika. Rub over all sides of the pork tenderloin and place in the slow cooker (I use a 2.5 quart oval slow cooker).
  • Cover and cook on high for 1.5-2 hours, or low for 4 hours, until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 150-160 degrees F. 
  • Move tenderloin from the slow cooker to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. If desired, add additional corn starch and water to the juices to thicken further. Serve.
