Create a delicious and flavorful quick and easy dinner with Crockpot Brown Sugar Maple Syrup Pork Tenderloin.

I liked this recipe but I think I should either cook it less time or use something like a pork loin instead of a pork tenderloin. It was a little overcooked and that made the pork tenderloin tough.

Crockpot Brown Sugar Maple Syrup Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. pork tenderloin
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 Tbsp Dijon mustard (I used “regular” whole grain)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

Sauce
To thicken sauce combine 1 Tbsp cornstarch and 1 Tbsp water in a small cup and stir until smooth. Set aside and use to thicken sauce after pork is cooked.

Directions

  1. Place tenderloin in the slow cooker and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small bowl combine the garlic, mustard, honey, brown sugar, vinegar, thyme and maple syrup.
  3. Pour the mixture over the pork.
  4. Replace the lid and cook on LOW for 7-9 hours or on HIGH 3-4 hours.
  5. Remove the pork, pour the sauce from the crockpot into a small saucepan.
  6. Bring to a boil and add small amounts of the cornstarch and water mixture, stir after each addition.
  7. Cook until thickened (you may not need to use all the cornstarch/water mixture).
  8. Serve the sauce over the pork.
  9. Enjoy!

NOTE: I think that I would use a different cut of pork for this next time (probably pork loin). Pork tenderloin is already tender and doesn’t need a lot of cooking to begin with. Although the flavor of this sauce is excellent, I found the pork tenderloin a bit stringy because it had cooked for so long. So reducing the cooking time or using a different cut of pork that needs longer slow cooking would be best.
