In 20 minutes, you can combine five ingredients in the morning and enjoy a slow-cooker sensation at suppertime!
pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (6 cups)
pork tenderloin (2 pounds)
cup orange marmalade
cloves garlic, finely chopped
Arrange squash around edge in 3- to 4-quart slow cooker.
Sprinkle with salt. Place pork in slow cooker (it will overlap squash
slightly). Mix marmalade and garlic; spread evenly over pork.
Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours.
Remove pork from cooker; place on cutting board. Cut pork into
slices; serve with squash.
Try another flavor of marmalade, such as pineapple.
If you have time, brown the pork in oil on all sides before placing in the slow cooker. Browning adds color and a deeper flavor.
Watching your salt intake? Omit the salt, and season with pepper.
This is a great recipe to serve for entertaining. Fan pork slices in a circular pattern on a platter, and spoon squash in the center. Drizzle remaining juices over pork, and garnish with slices of fresh orange.
