Made From Scratch Tuesday 11/1

 My favorite thing about pork tenderloins is you can throw them in the crock pot and not think about them until hours later. So on a Sunday when I'm trying to get all the things done I didn't so on Saturday, it's a perfect choice. To mix it up a bit this time, I made a spicy tenderloin. Here's what you'll need:

2 T Ketchup
2 T White Wine Vinegar
2 T A-1 Sauce
2 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 t Garlic Salt
1/4 c Sugar
1/2 t Ground Black Pepper
Dash of Hot Sauce (or more if you want it spicier)
One large onion, sliced

Lay out the onion slice in the bottom of the crock pot and put the tenderloin on top. If it has a "fatty side", lay that side down.
In a bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients. 
Pour the mixture over the pork loin, put the lid on the crock pot and cook on low 4-5 hours. That's all it takes to have a juicy hunk of pork on your dinner platter. I love this because it's so versatile. You can change up the spices and seasonings to suit your needs. And your leftovers make great pulled pork bbq! How can you go wrong?? 

We had some sweet and spicy couscous and roasted veggies with it....absolutely delicious!

My mom used to make something similar to your pork tenderloin. The meat was sooooo tender.

I've linked up three recipes this week. My Marinara Sauce, a colorful Salad with Grapefruit, Beets & Feta and some Pumpkin Chai doughnuts made with Chai Tea infused milk. Btw, all of my recipes are gluten free.
