Slow Cooked Pork Loin Recipe – The Best Comfort Food
This slow cooked pork loing recipe came from a friend of mine who wanted me to try out her recipe. I have been making it ever since with a few of my own modifications. It makes nice tender pieces of pork with a lusious gravy. Perfect to pair with mashed potatoes.
This is a meal I plan on when I know I am going to be out of the house for most of the day. I can get the meat ready and put everything in the crock pot that morning, then when I get home, I can make mashed potatoes and a vegetable to go with it. Dinner can be on the table in about 30 minutes! I love these kind of meals!
Slow Cooked Pork Loin
1. First, take a Pork Loin or like I did, a tender loin, and using a good sharp knife cut it into 1 inch thick pieces. For my big family, I had to use 2 loins, but I got a great deal on them. Pork loins are
more white meat, where tender loins are dark meat. I really like dark meat over white, but you can use whatever cut you want. This can also be done with pre-cut pork chops. This past week Meijer had the tender loin on sale, buy one get one free. That is a great price for me!
2. Next, combine these ingredients in a medium size bowl:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
3. Roll each piece of pork in the flour mixture, saving the left over flour. Brown pork in a skillet with 1/4 cup coconut oil heated up. Enough oil to cup up the sides of the pork. The amount of oil you use will differ with the size of skillet you use. Do not cook the pork, just brown the outsides.
4. Take the rest of the leftover flour mixture and put it in a slow cooker with 32 ounces of chicken broth. Whisk till all clumps are gone.
5. Add in the browned pork. Put on lid of crock pot. Cook on low for 5 hours.
As you can see in the picture, I made mashed potatoes and a California mix of vegetables to go along with this. You could also do rice and a salad.
