This is heretical, but …

Pork tenderloin in a Crock Pot

Karen has wanted to find some good recipes for her to fix during the week while I am working, but without her spending “forever” in the kitchen.  Despite her almost religious belief that a recipe cannot be good if it is one that I “made up,” this is tomorrow night’s dinner.  Our friends the Stowes and I had it once a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed.  That night Karen ate hot dogs with the kids, but tomorrow she is going to be adventurous.


  • pork tenderloin (1 lb. or a little larger)
  • 1 cups ketchup
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup  apple cider vinegar
  • 2 sweet onions (hand chopped, not too fine)
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 4 tsp molasses
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp cayenne (amount depends upon how hot you want it)
  • 1 TBSP smoked chipotle Tabasco sauce


  1. Brown the pork tenderloin on the stove top.
  2. Add the browned pork tenderloin and all other ingredients to the crock pot.
  3. Cook on low until the tenderloin shreds easily. (6 hours or more)
  4. Serve as you would pulled pork with sauce.

Let me know how it goes.  Also, let me know if you have any good crock pot recipes to pass along to Karen.

I will get another BGE recipe up soon.  Lately, we have just been extraordinarily busy with all sorts of fun family stuff.  I have been grilling, but sticking to the tried and true.

  1. Hello,

    My name is Eric and I’ve been following your blog for a while now. I’ve learned alot about my BGE in that time, so thanks! I was wondering if you would check out my BGE site and let me know what you think of it. I would appreciate if you would add me to your blogroll, if you think it is appropriate.
