Juicy and tender slow cooker pork tenderloin with flavourful port wine sauce. Such a simple and delicious combination that is easy to make on the slow cooker.
How to get the most tender slow cooker pork tenderloin?
Pork tenderloin is one of the most delicious cuts from pork, tender and juicy. It is also difficult not to overcook it. That is why a cooking thermometer is KEY for these kind of recipes.
I have a pretty basic cooking thermometer but it is perfect to cook all the meat roast I make. I will leave the link below the recipe if you are looking for one.

Pork tenderloin, 350 g
5 medium-size potatoes
8-10 brussels sprouts
1/ 4 pumpkin

Season the tenderloin with salt and pepper.
