Back to All Recipes


  • 2 lbs pork tenderloin
  • ¼ cup soy sauce, tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1 ½ Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ cup onion, diced


  1. Place tenderloin in a slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, prepare marinade by mixing together remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour marinade over the tenderloin in the slow cooker.
  4. Cook on low for 4–5 hours or until internal temperature reaches at least 145-160˚. Cooking pork in a slow cooker decreases the chance of it getting too dry, so opting for the higher temperature will still yield a delicious product.
  5. To serve, transfer tenderloin to a serving platter, slice and pour some of the remaining cooking juices over the meat to add flavor and moisture. Enjoy!


Umami (noun | oo-mah-mee)

a taste sensation that is meaty or savory — imparted by glutamate and certain other amino acids — often considered to be one of the basic taste sensations along with sweet, sour, bitter and salty.
