Updated November 11, 2009

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (6 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pork tenderloin (2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Steps

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours.
  • 3
    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.
