Sink your teeth into the scrumptious flavors of this easy Slow Cooker Pork Loin and Potato Dinner. With the hard work already done for you, this perfectly seasoned dish is a sure crowd-pleaser. Toss some pre-marinated pork loin into your trusty crockpot along with a few other ingredients, and voila, dinner is on its way!
Simple Ingredients for a Savory Feast
The ingredient list for this pork dinner is delightfully minimal, making it a breeze to prepare. Picture this: succulent pre-marinated pork loin, accompanied by baby potatoes (or larger potatoes cut into smaller chunks), your choice of broth (chicken or vegetable), a dollop of butter, and well-balanced seasonings of salt and pepper. Feel free to get creative and add garlic powder, onion powder, or any other spice that tickles your taste buds.
While this crockpot meal may not be one of my typical quickie 30-minute wonders, the prep time is under 30 minutes, making it an absolute win.
The Magic of Slow Cooking
What sets this slow cooker pork loin apart is its resemblance to oven-roasted perfection. Unlike most slow cooker pork recipes that result in pulled or shredded pork (which are fantastic in their own right), this dish offers a delightful roasted pork experience.
How to Create Slow Cooker Pork Loin Magic
To enhance the flavors, start by browning the pork loin filet in a skillet—this step is entirely optional, especially if you’re pressed for time. But if you find yourself with a spare couple of minutes, why not give it a go? Once browned, place the baby potatoes in the slow cooker, add the broth, and lovingly rest the pork loin filet on top. To elevate the taste further, crown the pork loin with a generous pat of butter. Pop the lid on, set the slow cooker to low, and let it work its magic for five hours.
As an additional touch, after about four hours, toss some fresh green beans into the mix! Trust me; you won’t regret it.
That’s it—a simple and hassle-free process. Once cooked, slice the pork to reveal its juicy tenderness, and serve it alongside the delectable potatoes. Don’t forget to generously spoon the cooking liquid over the entire dish for maximum flavor.
Leftovers: A Pleasant Surprise
The mouthwatering appeal of this dish means leftovers are a rare occurrence. However, if you somehow find yourself with some surplus pork, fear not! Leftover pork is an excellent addition to a skillet hash. Just imagine it combined with crispy golden potatoes and topped with a perfectly cooked egg—pure breakfast or lunch bliss.
