    Ok, so I had never used a crock pot before tonight, and I can't believe what I've been missing out on! I had been stressing all day that my apartment would burn down (it didn't) or the power would go out because of our big storm today (it didn't) or even that I would come back to find the tiny leak in my roof had caused a flood (it didn't). The only legitimate stress I had all day was work related, and I can't tell you what a relief it was to come home and have diner completely ready! I love Mexican, and looked at a number of recipes until I came up with this one.


    • 1 pork tenderloin (I used a 2 lb one)
    • 1 yellow onion, just cut into large rings
    • 1 tbsp garlic
    • 1 tbsp lime juice
    • 2 tbsp cilantro (dried or fresh)
    • 1 tbsp paprika
    • 1 tsp pepper
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • Small corn or flour tortillas - whichever you'd prefer
    • Sour Cream
    • Avocado
    • Salsa verde (I love to make my own, but for this I just used store bought)


    1. Place half of the onions and half of the garlic at the bottom of the crock pot.
    2. Mix all of the spices together evenly and rub all over the pork tenderloin. Place the tenderloin fatty-side up in the crock pot on top of the garlic and onions.
    3. Add the rest of the garlic and onions on top of the tenderloin and drizzle the lime juice on top.
    4. Turn crock pot on low for 8-10 hours.
    5. Once it's done, drain the liquid and pull the meat apart with a fork. Make sure you keep the onions!
    6. Before serving, heat up the tortillas either in the oven or the microwave. I find that the simple toppings of sour cream, avocado, and salsa verde are perfect with pulled pork.
