Slow Cooker Pork with Honey Cinnamon Apples

I came across this recipe on Pinterest and it was a winner. It's great to add to your assortment of crockpot recipes. Grab a pork tenderloin, throw it in the crockpot with apples, flavor with honey and cinnamon, then at the end of the day deliciousness will be waiting for you. I served this with couscous and roasted sweet potato medallions.

Crockpot Honey Pork and Apples from and Stephanie Ertel
   Prep time 10 mins | Cook time 8 hours | Serves 6

1 (3-4 lb) pork tenderloin
2 large granny smith apples, sliced
½ cup honey
2 tbsp cinnamon

   Slice slits in pork tenderloin. Place 1-2 apple slices per slit. Place ¾ of remaining apple slices in bottom of crockpot. Drizzle ½ of the honey over apple slices. Place pork on top of apple slices. Sprinkle cinnamon over everything. Place remaining apple slices on top and drizzle the remaining honey over everything.
   Place lid on and cook on low for 8 hours. Remove from slow cooker, slice and serve with apples on top.

Next time we make this I will forego the slits in the tenderloin. I think this dried it out a little bit and I prefer the apples on the bottom anyway. Plus that would save you an extra few minutes of prep time. I would also check the pork after 6 hours depending on the size. Ours was on the small side and probably didn't need 8 hours.

This was our first meal with the dining table set up for Christmas.
