What’s there to say about this easy, yet ever-so-flavorful pork loin recipe, other than it’s easy and ever-so-flavorful. I knew I was going to have a busy day ahead of myself so I tossed this into the the slow-cooker and went about my day.
I served the pork with quinoa cooked in my rice cooker with chicken broth (rather than water), and a little soy drizzled over it at the table. My kids were happy and the old man was happy, which made me happy. The pork was so tender that even my 14 month old was able to eat it.
I spent five minutes prepping the pork for the slow cooker, and went about my day. It was ready in time for dinner. If you find the pork loin on sale you can feed an army cheaper than if you took your family to a cheap fast food restaurant.
p.s. Despite how awesome I might appear online, mistakes happen. If you happen to spot one on this recipe, save your fellow cooks a disaster and let me know by using the contact form.
Ginger Soy Pork Tenderloin
- While preparing the seasonings, preheat the slow cooker on high.
- In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, balsamic vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic powder, ground ginger, and black pepper. Stir until blended.
- Add the pork loins to the slow cooker and pour the soy mixture on top.
- Replace lid and turn the slow cooker down to low heat. For very tender pork loin, allow to cook for 6 hours (or less for a firmer texture).
- Optional: About 15 minutes prior to serving, using a ladle, remove as much of the liquid from the slow cooker as you can and place in a pot.
- Optional: On high heat, allow the liquid to reduce in the pot until dark brown and slightly thicker, in order to concentrate the flavor.
- Remove the pork from the slow cooker and slice. Place in a large bowl.
- Optional:Drizzle the reduced liquid onto the pork.
- Top with sliced green onions.
