Too much cloves!

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.
