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!

What would happen if it stayed in on low all day?

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

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!

What could I use as a substitute for the sesame oil and balsamic vinegar? Snowed in and cannot get to a store today.

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?

I want to make this for 12 people so doubling it at least – does the cook time change?
