BBQ Pork Tenderloin {in your Crockpot}

Another Monday, another simple and delicious crockpot recipe, this one with pork tenderloin.  I made the BBQ sauce on the stovetop but if you’re pressed for time you could combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker and let it work its magic.  Truthfully, I’m excited about new wedding presents like the flame orange Le Creuset pot in these pictures and looking for any excuse to use them.  DSC_0314
