The Recipe

Onions In The Slow Cooker

Prepare The Sauce

In The Slow Cooker For 4 Hours


Roja Pork Tenderloin
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 1/2 to 3 pound Pork Tenderloin
3 medium size yellow onions in medium slice
4 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
4 teaspoons chili powder
3 teaspoons cumin
2 cups tomato sauce
1/4 cup molasses or pancake syrup
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup Hot Plum Chipotle Sauce
2 tablespoons EVOO
Wash the Pork Tenderloin and pat it dry. 
Mix the salt pepper chili powder and cumin together, rub the tenderloin all over with the season mix Set aside
Place the sliced onion and garlic in the bottom of a slow cooker
In a very hot skillet with 2 tablespoons of EVOO sear the tenderloin, then place it on top of the sliced onions in the slow cooker.
In the skillet that you seared the meat pour the tomato sauce, molasses or syrup, vinegar, brown sugar and Chipotle Sauce. Heat to medium heat to extract the "goodie" from the bottom of the pan and mix well
Pour the tomato mixture over the tenderloin, onions and garlic.
 Cover and cook on high for 4 hours
Serve sliced or as pulled pork.

When I served this tenderloin the first day I sliced it and served it at dinner. Then next day for lunch, I served it as pulled pork on a bun. This tenderloin is just delicious and a great dish for company.

It has been great spending time with you again. I sure hope to see you again on Thursday at  
Full Plate Thursday!
Peace and Joy

  1. I love a crockpot for meals like this! That tenderloin looks delicious! :)

  2. My Dad would love this pork recipe! He is such a fan. Thanks.

    Ps. Your menu sounds great. That chocolate cream pie would be a favourite of mine. Do you have the recipe?

  3. I carefully read the ingredients to your pork tenderloin, and it sounds divine. Love the addition of the addition of the hot plum chipotle sauce. Normally, pork tenderloin does not require a long cooking time, and you can rarely find, anything over two pounds.
    Slow cooker method is for sure a better way to cook, than conventional oven baking, which would only require less than an hour, otherwise it would come out dry!
    Fabulous photos of it, as well. Looks and sound really, really delicious, Miz Helen!

    I'm so happy to see the little chef on your side bar!

  4. Looks absolutely delicious! I really, really, should use my crock pot more often!

  5. The tenderloin looks fabulous. I'll be making this for sure this week. Thanks

  6. Pancake syrup! That is awesome. Can't wait to try your recipe. Thanks for linking up to Hunk of Meat Monday !

  7. Perfectly cooked & looks too good!!!

  8. Hi Brittany,
    I do have the recipe for my Chocolate Cream Pie, it is in my Cookbook Miz Helen's Kitchen Table. From time to time I put one of my cookbook recipes on the blog, who knows that may be one of them in the future. Thanks for asking and hope you are having a great day!

  9. I will definitely make this for Saturday Dinner Miz Helen.. (the night before Easter Sunday), Thanks

  10. WOW! I bet my family will love this one. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Yum. It's early in the morning, but I'd happily try this right now.

    I've never heard of Hot Plum Chipotle Sauce. Do you have a recipe, source, or substitution?

  12. Hi Miz Helen,
    This tenderloin looks so moist and flavorful with that sauce! I just love crock pot recipes, and pulled pork is my favorite. Thanks for coming by to see my little garden. The tomato plants are taking off and taking over, which I guess is good. We probably need to stake them this week since they are already getting so top heavy. My chipotle chili plant is producing, and green onions are emerging. Rosemary and thyme were delicious in olive oil marinade for our filets last weekend. I'm so excited and can't wait for a bigger garden :)

  13. I love recipes using a pork loin. I am always looking for new one's. This one looks so delicious. Thanks for another great recipe.

  14. Hi Miz Helen :) My husband and step son would think I was Queen of the Kitchen if I made them your Roja Tenderloin. While they're good sports about trying to eat well, I'm pretty sure they sincerely believe they're meat-deprived :)

    Thanks for linking to the Hearth and Soul Hop and for providing me inspiration for a yummy dinner for two of my favorite carnivores!

  15. your whole week looks delicious...but that pork..wow---mouthwatering! thank you for sharing with tuesday night supper club!

  16. Thanks for linking up, Miz Helen!

  17. This looks great but I don't know if I have ever seen Hot Plum Chipotle sauce.

  18. Wish I could plan for a whole week....this looks fantastic! I love the flavors of the sauce.

  19. Your tenderloin looks fantastic! I didn't know about Plum Chipotle, I bet it great, I've used the Raspberry Chipotle. Have to look for the plum!

  20. Pork is my favorite! Thanks for linking to Workshop Wednesday- Hope to see you this week!
