This recipe came from Your Homebased Mom.

You’ll need:

  • 2 lbs pork tenderloin (I used one that was like 4 lbs, and this amount of sauce was fine)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbs real maple syrup
  • 4 tbs Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tbs cold water

Put the pork in a slow cooker.  Salt and pepper the meat.

In a small bowl, combine the garlic, maple syrup, mustard, honey, brown sugar, vinegar, and thyme.  Mix well.  Pour over the pork, turning to coat.

Cook on low 7-9 hours or high 3-4 hours.

Once it’s done, remove the pork from the crock pot and cover with foil.  Put the juices in a small sauce pan and simmer 8-10 minutes.  Combine the cornstarch and water.  Add this to the simmering juices and whisk, cooking for a minute or so longer.

Pour the thickened juices over the pork.  Shred a bit and enjoy!
