Slow Cooker Asian Style Pork Tenderloin

We love a good lean pork tenderloin in our house.  It’s a nice change of pace from all the chicken breasts and ground turkey, it’s budget friendly (especially when purchased at Costco), and it cooks really well in the slow cooker – as evidenced here and here.   Here is just another variation.  Really, the possibilities are limitless – it’s a very versatile piece of meat.


1 2lb. pork tenderloin

1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup rice wine vinegar (any vinegar will do if you don’t have rice wine)

2 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp Chinese Five Spice powder

1 TBSP fresh grated ginger

4-5 cloves of garlic, crushed

8 oz of sliced mushrooms (optional)


  • Place pork tenderloin in slow cooker and cover with mushrooms
  • Pour remaining ingredients on top
  • Cook on high 4 hours or low 8 hours
  • Shred with a fork before serving
  • Serve with jasmine rice
