Recipe: Creamy Crockpot Pork Tenderloin

So, I've been making Amazing Pork Tenderloin a lot. Tonight, I wanted to make it, but I was out of onion soup mix. I decided to investigate online to see if I could find another crock pot pork tenderloin recipe that used ingredients I had on had. I did not, so I made one up, which is a mixture of many recipes that I found. It isn't exactly light, but it was very tasty. If you were to use cream of mushroom soup, it would be more like a stroganoff, but Todd doesn't eat mushrooms, so I had to use cream of celery, which was also good. I think the butter was unnecessary, but I included it because I was mimicking another recipe that was similar.

Creamy Crockpot Pork Tenderloin
Melt 4tbsp butter in the microwave, or at least soften it. Then, mix with about 8oz light sour cream (or regular sour cream, if you so choose). Combine with a can of cream of celery soup, and a packet of dry ranch dressing mix. Place pork tenderloin in crock pot (mine was still frozen). Pour soup mixture over pork. Cook on high for 4-6 hours.

Very good, You can also use pork chops instead of pork tenderloin, and cream cheese in place of the sour cream. I served it with noodles and a vegetable.

Hey--just a warning--you really shouldn't put frozen meat directly into the crockpot. When it starts out frozen, the temperature doesn't warm up fast enough to kill bacteria and such, leaving you at risk for food borne illness. Thawed food reaches a safe internal temperature fast enough for this not to be a concern. If you don't remember to thaw in the fridge in advance, defrosting in the microwave works fine for this.

You know, it's one of those things that I know about, but I do anyway. Like, I still tend to thaw things on the counter as well...

Probably shouldn't be telling you that if you're ever going to come eat at my house, huh?

I've been doing better for the most part, I don't usually thaw things on the counter anymore, I either cook with them partially frozen, remember to thaw them in the fridge, or do the microwave thaw. I actually did thaw this tenderloin in the microwave, but not all the way...
