Simple and Delicious Slow-Cooker Pork Loin

This slow-cooker pork loin is fall-apart tender and calls for only a few simple ingredients! Makes a great Sunday lunch!

This pork loin is incredibly easy to prepare and is tender and juicy after slowly cooking in the crock-pot. This makes an excellent Sunday lunch that you can quickly prepare in the morning before church!

Aside from the lemon juice, you do not need to add any liquids – it will produce it’s own juices. The pork will be so tender and juicy that it will be practically falling apart. It took some very careful maneuvering to stage this photograph!

This slow-cooked pork loin pairs wonderfully with white bean purée and a Greek salad.

  1. Yum!!! Love the picture of the meat. Looks amazing!

  2. Wow, that looks incredible! I love pork tenderloin, but I don’t have a good marinade, and I haven’t ever made it in the slow cooker. I am pinning this, and definitely making it!

    Thanks for sharing on Natural Living Monday!

  3. This looks divine and I love that it’s made in the slow cooker; I’m featuring it today:

    Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday :)

  4. Because of food intolerances, I need simple recipes, which this is. Looks delicious! Thanks for posting!

  5. Sounds yummy! We have a pork picnic roast in the slow cooker now, but I seasoned it with balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, rosemary, and garlic. I don’t think I’ve ever tried lemon on a pork roast, so I’ll have to try that sometime!

  12. A great crockpot recipe is always a winner on busy days. Thanks for sharing on Hearth & Soul Hop. :)

  13. I’ve got it cooking now!!! I hope my hubby likes it.

  14. Made this tonight and it turned out great, except I left it in too long and it got a tiny bit dry, but it was my fault for not checking it sooner. Also, it was amazingly simple! Thanks for the recipe!

  15. Donna Smith says:

    I made this for dinner last night and it was awesome. My husband gives it two thumbs up. He could not stop eating it. Thanks for the recipe. I will me put this in our meal rotations.

  16. Lori Taylor says:

    Tried this tonight. Oh my goodness. Went to take it out of the crock pot and it started falling apart. Got it to the serving plate to let it sit for a few minutes before cutting. When I started to cut it, it just fell apart. I had to taste it at that point and it was so good. It wouldn’t slice, each time I tried to slice it, it just fell apart so we turned it into pulled pork. I’ve never tasted anything to good. Its one I’ll be doing again. Thanks for sharing.

    I have never made a pork roast before but they were on for a good price this week. I thought I would go for something simple and this recipe worked great! Except I totally overcooked it. Apparently 4 hours on high was way too long for the size of roast I bought! Oh well, never mind it is still delicious. I found the liquid to be too salty to make gravy with, so I used it as liquid to mash the potatoes. Y U M ! ! Well, I did add a bit of cornstarch to some and had it… I must admit I like salty food. I think I will go buy another roast on sale and make again this week!

  18. Hi – about how large of a pork loin or tenderloin?

  19. Hi Stephanie,
    It would be so helpful if you could add the size of the pork loin you used as a guide for others when trying to figure out cooking times!
    This had good flavor but was so completely overcooked when I did it on high for 4 hours… :( Going to shred what’s left and put it in some soup so it’s not a total wash but I am curious to know how big your tenderloin was…

  20. Any additional liquid required than just the juice form the lemon?

  21. I’ve got this in the crockpot for tonight! Smells fabulous :)

  22. Stephanie says:

    This sounds great! How many people would this recipe serve? I’m thinking of making it for guests and want to make sure we’ll have enough for everyone :)

  23. I tired this using DoTerra oils instead of Lemon. Used abt 5 drops of Lemon and 5 of Basil too. The flavor was insane. My husband 3 yo and 1 yo loved it!!!

  24. I am making this right now!! It was so easy to prepare!! Hope my family likes it!!

  25. I am looking forward to making this recipe this week but how do you fit a four lb. pork loin in the crock pot? Mine is too long but I am wondering if it will be ok if I cut it in half? Thank you.
