Kitchen Confessions: Apricot Pork Tenderloin


So excited to kick off our Crock Pot Confessions link party today!!

I think cooler weather is finally here to stay and that means I have a good excuse to pull out my trusty crock-pot on a pretty regular basis.  Cool weather and crock-pot meals just go together, right?  I love any meal that is simple and quick to make and this Apricot Pork Tenderloin recipe fits the bill.  I always make it with pork tenderloin, but I think it would be really delicious with chicken, too.  It has sort of an Asian taste to it and I love it because we can stretch this meal for at least a few days.



The first day we just eat it with rice and a vegetable or salad.  On day two I either make pork sliders or tacos.  For the sliders I usually top with provolone cheese and warm everything in the oven to melt the cheese.  For tacos this past time this sweet meat with lettuce and a little feta was so delicious.  I'm not one to pat myself on the back when it comes to things in the kitchen, but y'all, those tacos seriously tasted like something from a restaurant.

Note - I am not a food photographer!  These were snapped quickly with my iPhone before serving dinner to my family. :-)

  1. That sounds yummy!! I'm going to try it soon. I make your chicken taco soup (you posted recipe a while back) all the time and we love it! I even take it to new mamas and it is always a big hit!
