Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

I’m not the world’s most patient person when it comes to cooking, so if something’s going to demand tons of prep time, I … uh … make The Todd cook it. But I stumbled on this lovely pork tenderloin recipe on Roglianos.com, a wonderful Italian dressing that can be used in an unfeasible number of dishes. If you’re looking for marinades, BBQ or grilling, side dishes, pasta recipes – this is your website. And the Rogliano’s cuts out an endless amount of items you usually have to chop, or measure, or mince or whatever people do when they’re actually cooking. There’s a huge amount of recipes from Rogliano’s on Pinterest as well.
