This was absolutely delicious. Hands down, the best pork I’ve had. We’re making it again right now for the second time since last week because it was such a hit! Leftovers are just as good and reheats very well. ~ Amanda
We eat a lot of pork tenderloin at our house. It’s just so easy to prepare, and there are so many ways to prepare it. But this is hands-down, without a doubt, my family’s favorite way to enjoy pork tenderloin.
Besides the great taste, I love it because it’s so easy. I also love the glaze. A lot. In fact, you could just skip the pork and eat the glaze with a spoon!
I make this pork tenderloin often for Sunday dinner. It’s a snap to throw the roast into a slow cooker before we head to church.
When we get home, all I have to do is whip up the glaze and dinner is served. And I love that it’s nice enough to for company!
This is AWESOME!! It is by far the best pork tenderloin I have ever fixed!! The glaze is absolutely amazing! I will definitely be fixing it again and again. ~ Judy
If you’re feeding a crowd–or some really hungry teenage boys–just use two pork tenderloins and double the sauce.

Looks deliscious. I’ll have to try it!
This is delicious! I did not have any sage, so I used rosemary instead. The glaze is perfect. I cannot wait for leftovers later today!
This was ah-mazing! I didn’t glaze the meat as instructed only because I wasn’t home to do it but rather I served the glaze on the side. The glaze is delicious but the pork on it’s own is PERFECT! My son didn’t like the glaze so he used BBQ sauce (I know sacrilege) but, hey, everyone was happy! Thank you for a great recipe.
You weren’t kidding, this was so delicious! It will definitely be a staple at our house!
Made this today and it was delicious! Next time we will do a bigger roast for sure. My almost 2 year old used his fingers to dip and eat the sauce. lol My husband, who is French and a great cook, was blown away. He plans to use the sauce next time we BBQ 🙂
Looks so good. Pork tenderloin is one of my favorites and I have my own recipe for that, but I will definitely give this one a try. You’ve twisted my arm!
Looking forward to giving this one a try! You’re right, I think the glaze alone sounds amazing.
My family is in love with this recipe, it’s now a staple on my menu.

I would like to try this recipe, but was wondering if you can make the roast from frozen or if it needs to go in the slow cooker already defrosted?
I’ve always used a thawed roast, but I suppose you could start with frozen and add a few hours to the cooking time.
This was *AMAZING*!!! It was on my menu plan last week, but we didn’t get to it until tonight. Definitely a keeper!
I made this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful! Everyone loved it. Definitely a new family favorite!

If I am using a 4lb pork loin do I need to double everything?
The sauce in this recipe is actually already doubled from the original recipe, because I like it so much. So you may be okay there. But you might want to add more of the seasonings that go on the roast.
This was absolutely delicious. Hands down, the best pork I’ve had. We’re making it again right now for the second time since last week because it was such a hit! Leftovers are just as good and reheats very well.

Very great post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed browsing your weblog posts. After all I’ll be subscribing on your feed and I am hoping you write again very soon!
Does this use pork tenderloin or a regular pork roast?
Your recipe calls for loin, but your description says tenderloin. Would it taste just as good if I used loin?
Sorry, I was using those terms interchangeably. I use tenderloin, but this would work great with any cut of pork.
Have you ever done this recipe in the oven instead of the slow cooker. If so, what temperature and how long?
I have not, but I’m sure it would work. I would try finding a recipe for pork tenderloin in the oven and go with that cooking temp and time.
Is it possible to put this on high for 3-4 hours instead of low? I didn’t get it in the crock pot in time.
