So much flavor. So much.
I’ll be honest, I think that pork tends to be bland…and has more trouble than chicken taking of flavor.
But, this is magical.
The slow cooker, plus the acidity from the orange juice, plus the other flavors in the marinade — magical (and easy) dinner.
This is also freezer friendly, which meals that the pork tenderloin marinates in the OJ marinade as it thaws, then it slow cooks the day away!
And I think this would be great with pork chops too 🙂
