If last week was fall food week, this is savory week. There are not a lot of dinner recipes here on Pale Yellow, especially those featuring meat because meat is the one thing I lack the confidence to cook often. A crockpot situation is a whole other story! Pork tenderloin is not cheap and this is a sure fire way to cook it perfectly. Add the apples, cinnamon, honey, and pork and set-it and forget-it! This is an easy dinner for any night of the week and all it needs to finish out the meal is a nice side salad. Print the Recipe!
Apple and Honey Pork
