Slow Cooker Blackberry Pork

So, as you can probably guess from the picture, this is from one of our Distance Dishes dates this fall. However, this recipe is a year-round favorite! I included it in my family’s cookbook compiled for our last family reunion. Adapted from a roasted pork recipe, I like this for the slow cooker – not only does it give me time for chores while it cooks (or, more realistically, a nap!).

Ingredients

  • 2lbs pork tenderloin
  • 1 16oz jar seedless blackberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine, such as cabernet sauvignon
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Season pork tenderloin with salt, pepper, and rosemary.
  2. Lay pork tenderloin in slow cooker and pour over jam, honey, and wine.
  3. Cook on low for 4 hours.

Wine Pairing: I had this pork with the same wine I used in the recipe, which was a Cabernet Sauvignon. The fuller flavor stands up to the slow cooking process and the pork!
