Sweet and Zesty Pork Tenderloin- Slow Cooked

Crock Pot Sweet and Zesty Pork Tenderloin

Crock pots are a great way to save time in the kitchen. A meal that cooks itself, well except for a few minutes it takes for us to prepare it.

When you have a picky eater, you try to make meals you know they will eat.  When I picked up the package of Pork Tenderloin I knew she would eat it and that is when I came up with the Sweet and Zesty Pork Tenderloin.

I rarely use my crock pot, it is old

I gathered all the ingredients I would be using to create my Sweet and Zesty Pork Tenderloin and began creating our delicious meal for the evening.
