I’ve loved apricot since I was a girl. Growing up in Illinois, we didn’t have fresh apricots around most of the year so I grew to love dried apricots and apricot jam anytime I could get it. That’s probably one of the reasons that I love this Slow Cooker Apricot Pork Tenderloin recipe – the flavors are so good together and they bring me back to my childhood. Enjoy this moist and tasty dish!
- Cover the bottom of the slow cooker crock with the carrots and onions.
- Generously season tenderloin with salt and pepper and place the over carrots and sliced onion.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together broth, apricot, mustard and thyme.
- Pour mixture over the tenderloin.
- Cover. Cook on Low for 6 hours, or until tender.
