Slow cooker apple cider pork tenderloin is the perfect fall dinner recipe! Made with savory fall spices, apples, carrots and sweet potatoes, it's an easy fall crock pot dinner the family will love!
Summer just doesn’t want to say goodbye here in Rhode Island.
Typical New England weather...it’s a high of 79 and sunny today but last week I had to wear two layers in my house because I refused to turn the heat on before November!
It may feel like summer weather today, but the leaves on the trees are already turning their beautiful fall colors.
This warm weather isn't going to stop me from carrying on with my fall vibes though ;).
...speaking of fall vibes, this quick & easy fall crockpot dinner screams fall.
Pork tenderloin is slow cooked with savory fall spices like sage, rosemary, ginger and cinnamon along with apple cider, carrots, sweet potatoes and apples. It's fall apart tender and very flavorful 🙂
The leftover juices are used to make an apple cider gravy to pour on top of your pork tenderloin and vegetables.
I'm telling you it's fall in a crockpot and *BONUS*...your house will smell amazing!
