Pork Loin Recipes

Pork Loin Recipes

I am always looking for new recipes, and these are some pork loin recipes that I have found that my family loves! I've tried quite a few over the years, and these pork loin recipes are the easiest and tastiest ones I've come across yet! If you have a recipe you'd like to share, please leave a comment about it and I'll give it a try- especially if they are recipes for cooking pork loin in a crock pot.

Teriyaki Pork Loin (author unknown)

My friend, Dawni, gave this recipe to me!  She fixed it for us one weekend, and I've made it myself several times since!


1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 Tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

12 oz apple juice concetrate

1 teaspoon ground white pepper

3-4 pound pork loin roast (best if not a "tenderloin")


(*Hint : You can buy fresh ginger in the produce section in a tube. You can keep it in the freezer in between uses!)


Mix all ingredients except the pork. Pour 1/2 of the mixture in a crock pot. Put the pork loin on top of liquid and pour remaining liquid over the top. Cook on low for approximately 6 hours.


My family loves this served over a bed of white rice, along with a dinner salad!

Pulled Pork (using Pork Loin or Tenderloin)

We love pulled pork sandwiches, and this a very easy way I make it for my family. You'll need:

1 pork loin or tenderloin

McCorkmick Seasonings "Grill Mates- Sweet & Smoky Rub"

After rinsing pork loin, place in crock pot. I heavily coat the pork with the seasoning rub. Add just a little water to the pan and then cook on low for about 6 hours or until the meat pulls apart with a fork. Once meat is done, remove from pan to make it easier to pull all of it apart. Return to the pan so the meat can soak in the juice before spooning it onto your bread of choice. Our preference is using Hawaiian Sweet Bread/Rolls for our sandwiches!!

      I have that same problem at times. The key is to not cook it too fast and then also not overcook it. I have a crockpot that has settings from 1-5, and when it says cook on low I usually set it on the 2 and it will take about 6 hours for it to get to what I call the "pull apart" stage.

      I'll have to give these recipes a try. I've always had a problem cooking pork. It tends to come out too dry.
