How to Cook a Pork Tenderloin in a Crock Pot
Pork tenderloin goes on sale all the time at Target, Cub Foods, etc. and I love to stock up when it’s cheap! I load up my deep freezer with about 5 at a time. They are perfect to pull out in the winter time to make some comfort food as well as garlic mashed potatoes and green beans! They make the meal complete.
