Skinny, Crock-Pot Balsamic Pork Tenderloin

Skinny, Crock-Pot Balsamic Pork Tenderloin


1½ pounds boneless pork tenderloin, see shopping tip

1 cup onions, chopped

½ cup balsamic vinegar

½ cup water

¼ cup honey

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon fresh garlic cloves, chopped

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes


1. Place pork tenderloin in crock-pot. Sprinkle onions over top and around pork. In a small bowl, mix together all remaining ingredients. Pour over pork and set timer for crock-pot, 2½-3 hours on High or cook on Low heat for5 ½-6 hours. The cook time varies a bit depending on your crock-pot.

2. Once the pork has cooked, remove from crock-pot onto a cutting board. Cut pork into thin slices. Add pork slices to a serving dish. Pour about ½ cup of sauce including onions over pork. You only use half the sauce. Note: the Skinny Facts were calculated using ½ cup of sauce.
The leftover sauce is great to use mashed into a baked potato or drizzle over leftover chicken or beef, if desired.

Makes 5 servings, Each serving about 5 ounces sliced pork plus sauce (the pork does shrink a bit when cooked)
