I never get tired of simple crock pot meals. Especially those that are healthy, yet cozy and inviting.

We eat a lot of chicken and fish in our house, with the occasional grilled steak on the weekend.

Rich and Savory Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin with Vegetables and Gravy |

Yet one protein I feel often gets sadly overlooked, is good ol’ pork. In the summer I tend to grill whole pork tenderloin and serve it with salad. However, the rest of the year I almost forget it exists. What a shame.

I’m trying to remedy the pork-less rut this spring, by cooking some of my favorite pork laden comfort foods.

What Is The Difference Between Pork Loin And Pork Tenderloin?

Although they sound alike Pork Loin and Pork Tenderloin come from different parts of a the pig.

A pork loin is larger and often tougher cut of meat that usually needs to be cooked for a much longer period of time.

However pork tenderloin is long and narrow, so it cooks much faster than pork loin. It’s great for grilling! Yet make sure not to over cook it because it dries out quickly.

Fortunately, in this recipe the crock pot makes it possible to use either pork tenderloin or pork loin.

Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin with Vegetables – an easy slow cooker pork loin recipe with potatoes, carrots, onions, and herbs in a rich tangy gravy.


  • 1 1/2 – 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby new potatoes
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, season the pork tendrloin with salt and pepper and lay it in the skillet. Sear the pork loin on all sides to seal in the juices, about 8-10 minutes total. (If using a regular skillet, add 1 tablespoon oil.)
  2. Cover the bottom of a large 6 quart crock pot with the chopped onions, baby potatoes, and carrots. Lay the seared pork loin over the top and surround it with the remaining vegetables.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the minced garlic, Musselman’s Apple Butter, dijon mustard, soy sauce, and broth together. Pour the mixture over the pork and vegetables.
  4. Cover the crock pot and turn on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 2-4 hours. Once the potatoes are tender, dinner is ready. Cut the tenderloin into thin slices and place on a platter, surrounded by vegetables. Taste the gravy, and season with salt and pepper as needed. Then pour the gravy over the pork and serve.

If you want to use a thicker pork loin, instead of tenderloin, cook on low for 10-12 hours, or on high for 5-6 hours.

    Will it mess it up if I don’t sear it first?


    • Sommer Collierposted February 19, 2019 at 11:40 am Reply

      Hi Rachel!

      Searing the pork loin helps lock in the juices and also give the exterior an appealing appearance. You do not have to sear if first, but it will definitely look and taste better if you do.

    Made this recipe & it was delicious! I didn’t have any apple butter, so I substituted with Maple/Pumpkin butter instead..OMG! Out of this world!

    The photo clearly shows a pork tenderloin which is what I just put into my crockpot. Is it supposed to be a pork LOIN which is much shorter. And I seared it all sides as the recipe called for. Have I just botched my recipe?

      Hi Valerie,

      No, you’re right on track. Yes, there is definitely a difference between pork loin and tenderloin. I used the words “pork loin” in the title because most people aren’t award of the difference and search for tenderloin this way. If you followed the recipe, it will turn out perfectly! :)

  4. Angelaposted January 22, 2018 at 9:31 pm Reply

    The recipe calls for pork loin, but the photo looks like tenderloin to me. A 1.5-2 lb. loin would be much shorter. Curious, because the two cuts of meat cook quite differently.

    My dad wants a recipe to make pork loin in his crock pot. This looks great but he doesn’t have access to Apple Butter. Suggestion?

    • Michelleposted October 11, 2018 at 8:33 am Reply

      There are ways to make apple butter at home. You can find tons of recipes for home-made apple butter online.

    This sounds so Good! Would it work the same with two smaller pork loins? I would love to make it this week with the loins that I have on hand!

    Currently have this in my crock pot while I am at work! Can’t wait to try it, it was super simple to put together!

      Exciting! Let me know what you think after you taste it. :)

    Hi! I’m super excited to try this recipe this week! I did have one question, and it may be a dumb question, but in the beginning when you are wearing the pork loin, is it searing the pork loin 8-10 total or 8-10 minutes on each side? 


    • Sommerposted September 18, 2017 at 7:15 pm Reply

      Hi Staci, It’s not dumb! :)

      Sear for 8-10 minutes total, about 2-3 minutes per side.

    Could you do this without beef broth or with chicken broth instead?

      Hi Paige, Absolutely! :)

      What could you use instead of mustard?

    Wow! That sauce is awesome. Did you know that pork is the most eaten meat in France? Beats chicken, fish, been and lamb.
