Sometimes I can catch a case of the lazies when it comes to organizing, cleaning, showering ... and cooking. However, I've never gotten a case of the lazies when it comes to eating.
This is when I'm in a predicament. I don't want to cook, but, um, I have to eat.
Insert crockpot recipe to save me from getting the hangries yet still allowing myself to be lazy.
This creation was a mix of what I had in my cabinets, and a few different recipes I had saved online.
The first step was to get out my slow-cooker and add one chopped white onion.
Next, I made a little seasoning mix of things I had in the cabinet.
1 teaspoon Oregano
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Chili Powder
I salt and peppered the pork tenderloin and added it on top of the chopped onions.
Next, I added my homemade mix to the top of the pork tenderloin. I only added it to one side because the other side was the fattier side of the tenderloin.
I had some Salsa Verde on hand so I added probably 1/2 cup to the crockpot.
I also added a couple of chipotle in adobo peppers with a spoonful of chipotle sauce.
For liquid, I added a can of beef broth.
I put the slow-cooker on high for about 2-3 hours. I checked it, then let it on low for about an hour until it was pulled apart tender.
As you see above, I pulled a piece apart before snapping a photo.
Then I shredded the entire pork tenderloin in the crockpot and let it all submerse it's delicious self in the juice it had created.
After a few pieces were removed, the only thing I wanted to do was make a simple taco out of it. You could use this meat for: tacos, burritos, salads, by itself, made into chicken enchiladas, you get the idea.
A simple taco of chipotle pork tenderloin, white onion, diced tomato and some shredded cheese.
I couldn't just make one so I made three. And then ate them all in about 3 minutes. How do you cook pork tenderloin in a slow cooker? Let me know because I need more inspiration for lazy cooking!
