Slow cooker apple-honey pork tenderloin

My sister-in-law shared this recipes with me and it's really a keeper. It's super easy and quick to make and it looks really pretty and fancy! Pork with apples and honey is such a classic combination. This recipe is a good start, but I think it will be fun to experiment and add different thing. Next time I am making this, I'll add some cinnamon. I made this in a slow cooker, because if you read my previous posts, you know that I am kind of obsessed with it, but I think baking this would be delicious too!

Slow cooker apple-honey tenderloin

Pork tenderloin (I used 2,5 lbs and had to cut it in half to fit in a slow cooker)
1 onion sliced
2 apples, sliced
1 C apple cider
1/4 C honey
2 Tbsp honey Dijon mustard
salt and pepper

On a cutting board rub the tenderloin all over with sat and pepper. Slice it about an inch apart without cutting all the way, stop just before you reach the bottom. Insert apple slices into each "pocket", like this

Continue until all the "pocket's are filled with apples.

Spray a slow cooker with some cooking spray or place some olive oil on the bottom. Spread sliced onions on the bottom. Placed your prepared tenderloin with apples on top.

In a bowl with apple cider add mustard and honey. Stir until combined and pour the mixture over the meat. Cover and set on low for 8 hours.

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did!
