Sweet Apple Tenderloin

Oh my, this is delicious!
Sweet Apple Tenderloin Ready to Serve!
The tenderloin comes out of the slow cooker just beautiful.  I had to nibble some immediately.

Straining out all the solids leaves you with a wonderfully clear dipping sauce.

Return Some Dipping Sauce Back to Shredded Tenderloin

Sweet Apple Tenderloin

1 Pork Tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat
2 Tablespoons crushed dehydrated apples
1/2 cup hot water
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Place tenderloin in slow cooker.
In small bowl pour hot water over apple bits.  
Stir in remaining ingredients.  Pour mixture over tenderloin.
Cover and cook on low 8 hours.
Remove tenderloin from slow cooker.
Strain remaining liquid through sieve to remove solids.  Save liquid, discard solids.  
Wipe out slow cooker with paper towel.
Return meat to slow cooker and shred.  
Add a little (or a lot) of strained dipping sauce back to shredded meat to moisten and add flavor.
Set slow cooker to keep warm setting until ready to serve.  
Try, if you can, to not nibble shreds of it before dinner.
Serve alone or on buns with additional sweet apple dipping sauce or favorite barbecue sauce.
Enjoy.  YUM!

Normally I would smother my pulled pork with barbecue sauce, not this.  The flavor and texture was so good I did not want anything covering it up.  I ate it plain, and had a second helping.

Just writing this makes me want to go run to the refrigerator and devour all the leftovers.
