Jamaican Jerk Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin
This Jamaican jerk crockpot pork tenderloin is a very simple and easy recipe that has a small bite but takes on a sweet flavor from the oranges and mangoes.
Pork tenderloin is very lean and tender, but will dry out faster than most other cuts. Cuts from the pork shoulder thrive on slow and low cooking times of 9-11 hours, but the pork tenderloin because it is so lean only requires 4-6 hours on low or 2-3 hours on the high setting.
With all pork tenderloin crock pot recipes, the meat is nestled in a liquid, helping to keep the meat moist and tender.
Tenderloin has a silver skin that runs the length of the meat; it should be removed with a thin sharp knife.
Removing the skin will help in cooking the tenderloin more evenly.
