Anyone have a yummy recipe to share?

I'm tired of the same old marinate, sear, finish in the oven stuff. :sadm:

Or... maybe you have an interesting marinade that I haven't tried.

If you have a slow cooker, grab a package of Club House mix, it's not called Pulled Pork but that's what it is. (picture of pork sandwich on it) OMG, it is awesome!! You don't have to babysit it and it's fantastic, so much meat from a little tenderloin as well.

Or you could do a sweet and sour pork, that's what I'm making tonight when I get home. Wish I had the recipe for you but I'm sure you can find one online. I just pull out the Betty Crocker cookbook and have at it.

I don't think I've ever seared and roasted a tenderloin. ;)

And I have never had a tenderloin done in a slow cooker. ;)

During the summer my husband cooks a whole pork loin - not just the tenderloin on the open fire.
He seasons it with garlic and onion powders and slowly roasts it over the open fire, about half way through he starts basting it with Real maple syrup and garlic. OH MY GOD, you want to talk about a taste sensation. SOOOO good.

I'm sure you can do the same thing in the oven with a pork tenderloin - just baste it with syrup and garlic, or barbeque it.

A good recipe for pork tenderloin is :
-sundried tomato and oregano salad dressing. for 2 tenderloins i usually use one bottle.
-put it in a plastic bag to maranate then put some garlic cloves and some salt and pepper and some oregano .
-marinate it for about 2 hours then dump all the contents in the bag in a pan
- cook it on 350 for about 1 hour. it comes out soo good.. you can even put that dressing on potatoes .

i learned this from my mom. cut it in slices. dip in egg or milk to moisten and then a bread crumb mixture with your favorite spices, i used sage, thyme, salt, pepper,

then fry in olive oil, or whatever oil you prefer. just pan fry, with a little oil, not alot. it is quite yummy!

I brown the tenderloins in a bit of oil, place in the slow cooker with a double batch of home made barbeque sauce on high for a few hours. Then remove the tenderloins, slice into medallions or pull it, place back in the sauce in the slow cooker on low with the lid slightly off so the sauce thickens up a bit. Everyone here loves it. It's like having ribs without the bones!! We either have it with mashed potatoes or on a bun. Yummy!
