Slow Cooker Honey Seared Pork Tenderloin

  • Cooking Time:

    4 hours
  • Servings:

    4–6

Ingredients

1 1/2 — 2 lb. pork ten­der­loin
option­al: cook­ing oil for sear­ing

Sauce ingre­di­ents:
2/3 c. hon­ey
4 T. soy sauce
2 T. brown sug­ar
3 T. sesame oil
4 T. bal­sam­ic vine­gar

The com­bi­na­tion of soy sauce and sesame oil give this Slow Cook­er Hon­ey Seared Pork Ten­der­loin and Asian fla­vor­ing that is out of this world. This recipe pairs well with a fla­vor­ful rice (like Jas­mine) and a cucum­ber sal­ad topped with sesame seeds. The option­al sear­ing step can add extra fla­vor but is not a must if you are pressed for time or want one less dish to clean. 🙂

Option­al step: Heat 2 T. cook­ing oil in a skil­let on Med-High and sear all sides of ten­der­loin. (about 10–15 min­utes total)

  1. Place ten­der­loin in slow cook­er.
  2. Mix all sauce ingre­di­ents in a bowl. (if you like it “saucy” you can dou­ble the sauce recipe)
  3. Pour sauce over ten­der­loin and coat well.
  4. Cov­er and cook on Low for 1 1/2 hours then flip ten­der­loin over.
  5. Cook 1 to 1–1/2 addi­tion­al hours and remove from the slow cook­er.
  6. Let the ten­der­loin sit for 10 min­utes before slic­ing.
  7. Slice ten­der­loin into pieces and (option­al) serve over rice topped with sauce from the slow cook­er.

Note: If desired, you can thick­en sauce remain­ing in slow cook­er by com­bin­ing 1 T corn starch with 3 T. water in a small cup then pour­ing in slow cook­er. Cov­er and sim­mer sauce on High for 10 min­utes while pork is rest­ing.

OPTIONAL: I have also made this recipe with 3/4 to 1 inch thick Pork Chops and it is also very good, but it should not be in the slow cook­er more than the crock­ing time, as it will dry out.

Hap­py Crock­ing!

Sounds yum­my! should you only cook it till it reach­es 145 as if bak­ing? or will it stay moist if it cooks beyond that?

What about adding sesame seeds? Would you put them on just before serv­ing?

Hi! I’m plan­ning on mak­ing this tomor­row but will be cook­ing 2 ten­der­loins in one crock pot, total­ing 4.3 pounds! Should I use the same tem­pa­ture set­tings? Appre­ci­ate the advice!

Hi.…I was plan­ning on mak­ing a pork roast tomor­row, but am real­ly in the mood for mashed pota­toes and green beans. Do you have any oth­er great recipes that would pair with those sides? This one sounds great, but I already bought the pota­toes and green beans! Thanks 🙂

How much longer do you think? 6–8 hours instead of 4?
