I’m a tweaker.

I love to “tweak” recipes I find. Sometimes it works out, sometimes its a huge whalloping failure. This time though, it worked out for the best. Juicy, succulent and full of sweet, tangy, savory flavor.

It started out with a little research. I was scouring Pinterest for a good pork tenderloin recipe. The ones I found varied slightly but were mostly the same. After trying the apple pork recipe thats been floating around and finding it to be painfully bland, I wanted to make sure that this roast wouldn’t go to waste. I took bits and pieces from a handful of recipes and added a few things to make the recipe my own. Here’s the recipe I decided suited my tastes. Feel free to improvise and substitute as needed!

Apricot Glazed Slow Cooker Pork

Ingredients

  • 3lb Pork Loin Roast
  • 1 jar Apricot Preserves
  • 1 package Onion Soup Mix (I used Lipton. My roast was on the small side so I used 3/4 of a packet)
  • 2 tbsp Spicy Brown or Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 c Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c water (for added flavor, you could subsitute white wine, or bourbon)
  • Pepper, to taste (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients. Place pork in slow cooker and pour mixture over top.
  2. Cook on low 6 hrs or until tender. Remove roast and allow to rest 10 minutes before cutting.
  3. I cut mine and placed it back in the slow cooker with the sauce to warm until ready to serve. You could also add a little cornstarch/water mixture to thicken the sauce and serve over the meat.
  4. Serve with your favorite side dish or the Roasted Bacon Brussel Sprouts.
