Marinated Pork Loin

How about cooking Marinated Pork Loin in the crockpot? After the meat simmers all day you can all gather and enjoy a feast.

Not only is it quick easy to prepare, but the meat will be tender and delicious.

Last summer, I had invited friends over for dinner and that day we were also having a contractor installing a window over the kitchen sink at our lake house and I would be gone all day, so I needed something easy and delicious to prepare.

Believe it not, there was no window by my kitchen sink - and I was tired of looking at the wall instead of enjoying the beautiful lake view - needless to say, I desperately needed a window. OH, back to marinating pork loin...

I chose this recipe for marinated pork loin - because it would be super easy - just pop it in the crockpot and forget it. While we were getting the project done away from home, the meal would be happily simmering.

Here is how I make tender and tasty marinated pork loin.

One large pork loin
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic (minced), dried granules or powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
a good dash cayenne pepper
peach jam or orange marmelade for gravy

Marinade Sauce:
Combine ketchup, water, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Do not use acidic marinades in aluminum containers.

Place meat in a large plastic food storage bag, (a 2-gallon plastic bag works great) or a glass bowl; add above mixture and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

Cook in a crockpot on low for 8 to 10 hours or roast in the oven at 325°F. Add some of the liquid from the marinade to the crock pot.

Pour the remainder of the marinade into a saucepan and bring up to a boil and refrigerate. You may want to use some or all of it to add flavor to the gravy.

For a quick sauce/gravy pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a saucepan and add peach jam or orange marmalade. In case you use a roasting pan, add the drippings.

To thicken the sauce, add 1 tablespoon or more flour, corn starch, or potato starch to cold chicken or vegetable broth, stir well and add to the liquid in the saucepan while stirring. Keep stirring while bringing the liquid to a slow boil. Now you have very tasty gravy for your meal.

I served Sweet Sour Red Cabbage (Rødkål) and Mom's Mashed Potatoes. along with a green vegetable, and of course being Norwegian, I filled a large beautiful bowl with whole cranberry sauce as a delicious accent to accompany the pork loin, and of course, topping it off with a lovely crisp green salad is a must.

This easy Marinated Pork Loin dinner received very high ratings from our friends, in fact, they are still talking about it. © Copyright 2020
