Spicy Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

Super low-maintenance, yet quite flavorful, this spicy slow cooker pork loin is an easy meal you can cook once and eat twice. Because leftovers are great to repurpose into another meal, like pulled pork sandwiches, or loaded baked potatoes. And you'll love the spicy kick in every bite!!!


  • 2-3 lb pork loin, mine came in 2 pieces
  • 2 large sweet onions, sliced
  • 1 cup hot water
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, about 3 large cloves
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  • Place onions in the bottom of slow cooker.
  • Place pork loin over the onions.
  • In a small bowl, combine water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, hot sauce, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour over the pork.
  • Cover and cook on low for 7 hours, or on high 3-4 hours, or until inserted thermometer reads 160°F.
  • Transfer the pork and onions onto a platter. Tent with foil and let it rest for 10 minutes, while you finish the sauce.
  • Carefully pour the liquid from the slow cooker into a saucepan. Bring it to boil.
  • In a small dish, combine cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water. Add it to the sauce. Cook the sauce until nice and thick, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve the pork, sliced, with spicy sauce over mashed potatoes, or steamed rice. Leftovers are great for sandwiches, egg rolls, and with baked potatoes as well.
