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.

BTW: Do you have a recipe that uses Rogliano’s dressing? Submit it here and we’ll send you a free bottle! (You can also add it in the comments here if that’s easier, I’ll make sure you’re taken care of.)

Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

This is the most tender, juicy pork tenderloin you’ll ever eat, and it makes its own tasty gravy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pork tenderloins, around 2½ pounds
  • 1 bottle Rogliano’s Italian Dressing
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons for browning the meat

Instructions:

  1. Brown pork tenderloin with a little olive oil over medium high heat
  2. Season the tenderloin with salt and pepper. Put into slow cooker.
  3. In a bowl, mix together a bottle of Rogliano’s Italian Dressing, minced garlic, brown sugar, butter and chopped parsley.
  4. Pour the mixture over the pork. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4 hours.
  5. When pork is finished, put on to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  6. Pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a pot, simmer at medium heat.
  7. Mix the cornstarch with a ¼ cup of cold water, add cornstarch to the pot and bring to a boil.
  8. Cook for about a minute until the sauce has thickened.
  9. Add the butter to the sauce and stir until melted.
  10. Slice or shred the pork and pour the sauce over the top and serve.

Todd & Erin’s Shop Locally Holiday Guide – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing

The Todd & Erin “Shop Locally” Holiday Guide – Rogliano’s Italian Dressing.

I have a 6’6 mountain of a brother that’s a hard-core carnivore. He was “Keto-friendly” before there was such a thing. So I buy him a case of Rogliano’s Italian Dressing every year for his Christmas gift. Aside from being ridiculously tasty, this stuff acts as a marinade … part of your crockpot meal … ribs … pasta salads … pork … sandwiches … shrimp … it even makes a perfect gourmet grilled cheese sandwich and panini when you baste dressing on your bread instead of butter.

Would you like a free bottle of Rogliano’s?

Just send us one of your recipes that’s made better with a little Rogliano’s added and we’ll send you a bottle! You can add it in the comments below or send it to: toddanderinshow@gmail.com.

 

But here’s why I love Rogliano’s: Jeff and Veronica.

They’re the owners of this lovely, tasty business and they’re at every local fundraiser, every community event, and they epitomize “shopping local.” Rogliano’s is carried in select local grocery stores, from Harmons, Macey’s, Lee’s, Fresh Market and Dick’s Market.  You can find all the locations that carry them here. If you don’t want to have to actually leave the house, you can order them online as well at Rogliano’s.com. There are all kinds of lovely recipes online as well, just in case you have “chef fatigue” and you can’t think of one more thing to cook. Jeff describes their tasty dressing like this:

“The recipe for Rogliano’s Italian dressing has been a family tradition since 1922. The authentic Italian taste comes straight from the old country and is not only a delicious salad dressing, but makes a great dipping sauce, seasoning or marinade that is superb for grilling.”

 

They’ve dressed up their bottles for the holidays, so it tucks nicely into a Christmas stocking, a gift basket (or in my gigantic brother’s case, a side of beef and a case of Rogliano’s) and part of anything that needs extra tastiness. Here’s a store locator to find your Rogliano’s fix closest to you. You can also find them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
