Jamaica Allspice Apple Honey Pork Tenderloin

Autumn is my favorite time of year. In celebration of it's impending arrival, and the fact that apple picking season has started, I made a Jamaican allspice apple honey pork tenderloin in the slow cooker for dinner. Not only is it yummy, it's easy to do and makes the house smell good all day. This recipe is one of my own creation while digging through the spice cabinet.

While this is the first time using the allspice, I've done other apple honey slow-cooked pork dishes before. Each one has been so tasty. Plus, there are plenty of leftovers for A's lunches for a few days. The apple I used is one that has been sitting in the fridge, needing to be used up. Fresh apples from our favorite orchard will be making an appearance in the next couple of weeks. We go at least once (usually more) each year to apple pick. I can't wait to start on all my yummy apple recipes for the season--even better, I'll get to share them with all of you! Now, on to tonight's delicious pork. (M2 and I ate ours covered in applesauce).

by The Stay-at-Home Life
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Ingredients
  • Pork tenderloin, defrosted
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 stick butter/margarine
  • 2 tbsp Jamaican allspice
  • 1 large apple, sliced
Instructions
Cut slits in the top of the tenderloin, about half an inch apart. Cut most of the way through but not completely.
Melt margarine in the microwave.
Add honey and allspice to the melted margarine, stir until it's well blended and smooth.
Smear over the tenderloin. Separate the slits and pour in a generous amount of the mixture as you go.
Add some water to the slow cooker pot, put the tenderloin in. Cover with the apple slices. Pour any margarine spice mixture that dripped off the pork into the slow cooker.
Set the slow cooker to high, cook about 6 hours or until done. You could put it on a lower heat setting if you want it to cook longer.
