Slow Cooker Apricot Pork Tenderloin

  • Cooking Time:

    6 hours on Low
  • Servings:



2 lb. Pork Tenderloin
6 Carrots, peeled and chopped
1 Onion, chopped
3/4 c. Chicken Broth
1/4 c. Dry White WIne
18 oz. Apricot Jam
2 T. Dijon Mustard
1 tsp. Dried Thyme
Salt & Pepper to taste

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!

  1. Cover the bottom of the slow cooker crock with the carrots and onions.
  2. Season tenderloin with salt and pepper and place the over carrots and sliced onion.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together broth, wine, preserves, mustard and dried thyme.
  4. Pour mixture over the tenderloin.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 6 hours, or until tender.

Happy Crocking!

Hello again,

Should the pork tenderloin be sliced before placing in the slow cooker or remain intact? I also was wondering if it was safe to cook this on high for half the time or do two hours low and 1.5 hours high?

I kept the tenderloin whole but when it was done, I sliced it and put it back with the “juices”. I cooked it on low for 6 hours and came out great.

I am disappointed in how this turned out followed the recipe exactly didn’t look anything like the picture. The meat had a reasonable good flavor but there was a lot of liquid gravy I guess you could call it , I thought it would be thicker.

I made this, and it was absolutely delicous! My family keeps asking for it. Thanks so much for this recipe.

Followed directions with no changes or substitutions and
this was big disappointment for us as well. Way too much liquid and flavor was just okay. Will not make again.

I have A 3qt slow cooker and the liquid certainly filled the pot. 18oz of preserves and 1 cup of broth was waaaay too liquid. Next time I’ll try just boullion powder and NO added water to make the broth component. And I also agree that the picture shows a browned roast and that can not happen. Maybe by broiling it after you cook it in the slowcooker?

Could i use dried apricots instead of jam?

Did you broil your roast to get the color in the picture?
