The Best Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin (With Video!)
Recipe notes for Crockpot pork loin
/Sauce: The sauce is really fabulous, but if you don’t want to make the cornstarch suspension and don’t mind the sauce on the thin side, you can pour it straight from the cooking pot and spoon over the pork. It’s also a great au jus sauce for dipping pork loin sandwiches.
: The pork loin is surrounded by a hard membrane called silver skin. Because it does not dissolve or decompose during cooking and if it is not removed it will be hard and chewy.
To remove silver skin: Grab the back
- at one end
- Gently drill an opening between the silver skin and the spine and cut 1 inch to create an eyelash that you can latch onto
- Hold the tongue and guide the knife down, and at the same time remove the silver skin from the flesh, making it easier to cut and remove it from the back.
Crust: If you like your pork with a crust, strain it very quickly in a cast iron pan before adding it to the slow cooker. You don’t want it to cook, you just want it to brown. Remember: this step is purely optional. I love how this dish comes out unburned, so I usually skip it, in favor of the ease of preparation.
Leftovers: If you have leftovers, this makes amazing shredded meat sandwiches.
Temperature: Generally, when I cook pork loin in the cooking pot, I don’t take out my instant-read thermometer. Pork can usually be cut with a blunt spoon, so I know it’s cooked enough.
If you are worried for any reason, or just want to check it, the safe internal cooking temperature of pork for fresh cuts is 145°F, leaving it a little pink in the middle and tender and juicy. (Click here for more information on pork cooking schedules.)
What is the difference between pork loin and pork loin
pig? When asked, many people don’t know that there is a difference between pork loin and loin. The two cuts really are quite different and preparing and cooking them, in the same way, will result in many failed recipes.
Pork loins: Also known as pork fillet and pork tenderness, pork loins are taken from the muscle that runs alongside the pig’s spine and are therefore boneless. Due to its delicate taste, tenderness and fine-grained texture, it is a popular choice among pork lovers.
Pork loin is considered the most tender cut of pork available and is a meat of very delicate flavor.

Pork loin: This thick cut is taken from the pig’s back, in the area located below the shoulder and extending to the leg. The term “pork loin” is used for various cuts that come from this particular area. Pork loin is usually available with bones or boneless. It has a mild flavor with a strong layer of fat that can be trimmed if desired.
