lemon, onion, and cilantro pork

If you haven't already figured it out, Chef Jeff and I don't eat a lot of meat. We are by no means vegetarians, nor do I think we ever will be (because I crave a big juicy beefy cheeseburger every now and then). We just don't eat a lot of meat because there are so many other delicious foods to eat. Well, with us getting ready to move, I decided it was time to use the pork tenderloin that we had in the freezer. Here is a crock pot recipe for pork tenderloin. I threw it together during my son's morning nap and enjoyed a warm and tasty dinner when Chef Jeff came home.

  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 2 cups onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, diced
  • 2 small zucchinis, sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice (we juice fresh lemons in bulk, freeze the juice in ice cube trays, and store the cubes in a freeze bag)
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  1. Thaw the pork tenderloin in the refrigerator for a day or 2
  2. Place pork in crock pot
  3. Add onions, cilantro, zucchinis, celery, lemon juice/cubes
  4. Add 2-3 cups of chicken broth
  5. Set crock pot to high/4 hour setting


  1. your crock pot post inspired me this morning and so tonight we are having garlic/itallian seasoning chicken with onion, potato, and carrots- should be done in an hour and a half and man has it made the house smell delicious all afternoon!
