Plum Pork Tenderloin

Plum Pork Tenderloin.

More and more I hear friends and coworkers grumbling about deciding ‘What’s for Dinner.’  It seems to stem mostly from lack of time to prepare and/or lack of inspiration.  On occasion Lemony Thyme finds herself in a similar predicament.  That’s exactly what sent me to Cooking Light in search of slow cooker recipes, where I found this Plum Pork Tenderloin recipe.

Plum Pork Tenderloin

Not only is this Plum Pork Tenderloin made in a slow cooker while you are out busy doing what you do, but it also turns into amazing with only 5 ingredients.  I think Cooking Light deserves extra credit for that!!

We served this Asian inspired pork tenderloin with jasmine rice and steamed snow peas and carrots.  You’ll find this dish yields a lovely almost tart sauce with hints of cinnamon and allspice.  It’s really wonderful spooned over the pork and rice.  The recipe can easily be doubled to serve you and seven of your closest friends.  Enjoy!
