"I've served this to guests and they always ask for the recipe. Excellent flavor combinations, moist, delicious. I've also made this over and over again in my electric pressure cooker, but I'm sure that the flavors when done in the slow cooker will be just as superb. I pressure cook a 3-pound roast on high for 65 minutes and do a natural pressure release for ten minutes."

"This recipe is a nice change of pace from the way I normally cook pork tenderloin. Love the fact that this is cooked in the crock-pot!"

"Recipe could probably accommodate a larger tenderloin simply by cutting it to fit the slow cooker. There was plenty of sauce left over (about 2 cups) which we used up on ham sandwiches. The family enjoyed it so much they suggested replacing the turkey on Thanksgiving with this entrée. It compliments an acorn squash side dish very well."

"I love pork tenderloin but my husband does not as a general rule. I made this and the only change I made was to use pineapple juice intead of orange juice. This was so tender and just delicious. Husband agreed this was the best pork tenderloin that he ever had. Glad to finally have a recipe that he will enjoy too. Yes, definitely a keeper."

"I followed recipe as written but used a 2 lb. tenderloin and substituted jellied cranberry for the sauce. Came out great, so tender and moist. We used the sauce over the meat and brown rice. The OJ really brings out the flavor. This was simple and elegant, thanks for a new favorite!"
