  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 2 to 3 Granny Smith apples about 2 cups
  • 1 medium onion sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ¼ cup honey


  • Slice apples and onions into ½-inch slices. Sprinkle the apples and onions along the bottom of a crockpot, reserving some of the apple slices.
  • Use a sharp knife to make slices across the top of the pork tenderloin about ¾-inches apart.
  • Settle the tenderloin into the bed of apples and onions. Place a piece of apple into each slice in the tenderloin.
  • Stir together the cumin, cinnamon, garlic powder, ground mustard, and honey to make a paste.
  • Spread the paste over the top of the tenderloin.
  • Cover and cook for 3 to 4 hours on high, or 7 to 8 hours on low.


PRO TIP: If your apples have tough skins, consider peeling them before slicing them. The apples are going to break down almost to applesauce consistency during cooking.
PRO TIP: Use an instant-read meat thermometer to check for doneness. Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F.
PRO TIP: Serve your slow cooker honey apple pork tenderloin with an extra drizzle of honey.
