Crockpot Pork Tenderloin

I love to cook in the crock pot! The reason I love it is because it is really easy and requires very little effort. Here is a very easy recipe that Travis and I like to eat often. He introduced me to pork tenderloin when we got married. It's very tender and yummy!

You will need:
1 pork tenderloin (they come in a package of 2. I did not know this at first and didn't want to buy it because I thought it was too expensive, but it's not too bad since you get 2)
Potatoes (I use 2 red potatoes. Add as many as you want.)
Carrots (I use the baby carrots. I just throw how many you think you may want.)
Dales Marinade
Water

To Prepare:
Put the tenderloin in the crock pot. Fill the pot with water until the tenderloin is covered. Pour Dales Marinade into the pot. I use about a 1/3 of the bottle I think. Don't use just a little, it won't be very flavorful. Cut the potatoes and carrots and put them in the pot. Cook on high for about 4-6 hours. SO EASY!! I usually cook cornbread with it.

Cornbread Recipe ( I got this from my grandmother.)

You will need:
1 egg
3/4 cup Buttermilk (I use regular milk most of the time b/c I don't usually have buttermilk.)
2 tbsp oil
1 cup Self-Rising Cornmeal Mix (I use Martha White Yellow Mix.)

To Prepare:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In medium bowl combine egg (beaten), milk, and oil. Stir in cornmeal. Stir until smooth. Pour into greased 6" iron skillet. (I usually pour some oil into the skillet and put it into the oven for 5 minutes. I then pour the mixture into the hot oil. This helps keep the cornbread from sticking to the skillet.) Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan. Yum!

Enjoy!
