Crock pot pork tenderloin has been one of my favorite things to make lately. It cuts like butter and has such an amazing flavor. It is an easy, no mess, one press of a button meal.

Make sure you are using pork tenderloin for this meal. It is a long and skinny cut of meat, that looks very odd...
What Do You Need To Make Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin
Well a crock pot of course. I use the original crock pot brand and I love using the liners for easy clean up. I will tag those below for you to order.
Then you will just need a couple other ingredients.
- Pork tenderloin
- Brown sugar replacement
- BBQ Sauce
- Honey mustard
You can adjust the spices to your liking as well. I like my pork tenderloin sweeter, hence all the brown sugar and honey mustard. If you are looking for a true savory dish, skip the sugar and switch the honey mustard to regular mustard. If you like it spicier and more peppery, add ground red pepper and black pepper. Alternatively, you can use regular brown sugar if you do not like sugar replacements.
Here’s the specific pork tenderloin that I used. I have been getting a little backlash saying this isn’t actually pork tenderloin? Not sure why but anyways here’s the photo proof! Sorry it’s such bad quality, had to screenshot the recipe video.
How To Make Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin
It is quite simple to make, and pretty quick in the crock pot.
Combine all of the seasonings together and press into the pork tenderloin. Place the pork into the crock pot. I use a crock pot liner for easy cleanup.
Pour all the sauces over the pork, including some extra brown sugar, and swirl them together. Alternatively, you can stir them together in a small bowl and pour on top.
I use a crock pot thermometer to know exactly when the pork is done. It is really important to stop cooking right when it hits 140 degrees for the optimal pork. At this point, I would stick my probe into the pork. I will link my favorite thermometer below, it can be used in the air fryer, oven and grill as well.
Place the lid on the crock pot and cook for about an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes, just to when the internal temperature hits 140 degrees. Let rest for a couple minutes then slice and serve.
Increasing The Servings:
I have only tried this with two pork tenderloins (1 pound each) that’s about all that fits into my crock pot. For two pounds of pork tenderloins, two tenderloins, double the recipe of ingredients and double the cook time. I cooked two tenderloins for about 3.5 hours. One was ready 15/20 minutes before the other, different thicknesses cook at different times, so I took it out before the other. Again, use the thermometer probe to make sure you do not over or under cook either tenderloins.
You can also add some more bbq sauce on top after for a prettier presentation. Or slice it and no one will know the difference!!
