I have a serious question for you.

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? 

OK, so last year I was determined to start early so I could get it done and out of the way. 

PPfffttttttt  do you know what happened? Oh, I finished early alright, but then I kept finding more things to buy. So I ended up spending twice as much moolah! I decided that it was better to stress a bit before the holidays VS stressing a lot after them when I open the mail and see the bills

Althoooooooough this year we have the G-baby. So the budget will probably get blown because I never stop buying things for her! The baby section has a strange gravitational pull, so whenever I walk into a store and I can't help but go straight there.

I need to find a shirt that says "One broke Nana"!!

But that tends to be one of my, less than enviable, personality traits. I am impatient and have a serious lack of impulse control. I want, what I want, when I want it, and I don't want to hear anything about it.

Soooo I am pretty much a two year old with a bank account and a driver's license.

A great example? I have been asking my guy, for the last month or so, to help me move a few pieces of furniture, heavy furniture mind you, but he always seems to have a reason we need to do it "next week". 

*insert ticked off 2 year old*

Soooo I decided that I would "just show him" and moved the furniture by myself.

Ummmm wellllll, good news, I got most of it moved (one piece was too tall to get through a doorway so I had no choice but to wait for him to take it apart for me ).

However, I learned a valuable lesson.....I am too old for this shizz! What in the ever lovin' world was I thinking? I obviously wasn't! After it was all over my back was completely blown out, and I could barely walk!

Luckily I had already put this tenderloin in the slow cooker, so all I had to do was make a side of Cilantro Rice with Lime and Serrano and we were good to go!

Now, this pork?

Oh, it put me in a gooooood mood!

It is sweet, and spicy, with a bit of tang from the vinegar. Think Asia meets Mexico.

Yup, that is what we have going on here. It took my mind off of my sore back, and temper tantrum, and I just sat back and enjoyed every single bite. You might be worried about the heat of the jelly, but don't be. Once it is cooked down with the other ingredients it has a mild heat.

Word of warning though, be very careful when you broil the tenderloins. You want to go long enough to get the sauce a bit bubbly with some crispy edges, but if you go too long *poof* dried out pork, and I don't want you eating pork jerky for dinner!

That would make me very very sad

Slow Cooker Raspberry Jalapeno Pork Tenderloin

With a little bit of sweet and a little bit of heat, this easy to make slow cooker pork tenderloin meal with end up on your must make list over and over again!
prep time: 5 MINScook time: 8 hourtotal time: 8 hours and 5 mins

ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 1 cup chicken stock, divided
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar (can use white vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce (use Tamari if gluten-free is desired)
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jalapeno jelly

instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the salt, 5 spice powder, garlic powder, black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
  2. Rub the tenderloin with the spice mixture and place in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Pour ½ cup chicken stock down the edge of the slow cooker so you don't wash off the spice rub off of the tenderloin.
  4. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, and then preheat your broiler.
  5. While the pork is finishing up in the slow cooker and your broiler heats up, combine the cold stock or water with the cornstarch until smooth. Then pour it into a small pot along with the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and pepper jelly. Heat over medium heat and stir until mixture thickens - about 4 or 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, or parchment paper, and spray with nonstick spray.
  8. Carefully remove the pork from the crock pot, being careful it doesn't fall apart, and place on the lined baking sheet. Brush a generous amount of the glaze on the pork.
  9. Put your oven rack as high as it will go, and broil the pork for 1 or 2 minutes, then turn the pan and broil another 1 or two minutes, or until bubbly and caramelized. Serve with remaining glaze on the side.

    1. I have actually been using my sow cooker all year this year. I like it as an alternative to heating up my stove when we are in the middle of summer. Although our summer here in WA is pretty fleeting :)

  15. OMG. That first picture looks sooo good, and I immediately wanted to give this a try! I'm so relieved this is primarily a slow cooker recipe, because they are pretty hard to mess up. Best of all, I have most of these ingredients in the pantry already, so I can attempt my own dish with minimal effort and maximum payoff. Score! Thanks for the recipe!
