Crock pot Apple-BBQ pork. Super easy to throw together!

This recipe is a perfect addition to your fall menu. I love the easiness of the Crock Pot and the wonderful sweetness of fall apples mixed with tangy barbecue sauce, slow cooked over a mild pork tenderloin.

With only a few ingredients that you usually have on hand, this is a great recipe to throw in the crockpot in the morning, and come home to in the evening.

I threw my pork tenderloin in completely frozen, since I’ d be gone all day, but thaw it ahead of time if you need it done in a few hours. This is great with boneless skinless chicken breasts also.

Jan’s  Tip: If you can not find chunky applesauce, you can use regular applesauce and throw in a peeled, chopped fresh apple.

Aubrey’s Tip: Throw your meat in the crockpot on low before you go to bed and in the morning it’ll be amazingly tender.

    Excellent! I made with regular applesauce, sliced an apple, 1/2 C sweet onion and used Sweet Baby Rays. I cooked 8 hrs on low, shredded and then served over noodles. Sooooo easy to make!!!!!

    I just recently bought a crockpot and this is the second thing I’ve made in it. It was so simple and so delicious!! Thank you for the recipe =)

    Great recipe!! So easy. I placed the pork tenderloin in the crock pot completely frozen. I was nervous about that, but it came out perfect. I cooked it on low for 8 hours and it was so tender.

    I didn’t have applesauce so I put the bbq sauce in the food processor with half a granny smith & it was delicious. I had to go to work while it was cooking and it cooked a little too long, so it was a bit dry but still very tender and flavorful! Will do this again when I have more time to keep a watchful eye!

    This was very good! I ate it over rice but I imagine it would go good in hamburger buns as well. Freezes well which is a plus.
