Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin

1 med. pork tenderloin
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. Yellow Mustard
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
3 Tbsp. Honey
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
3 Tbsp. Chili Sauce
1 small onion, chopped

In a large non-stick frying pan heat the oil and sear the pork on all sides.  Set your slow cooker on medium, add the pork and allow to slow cook for 2-3 hrs. with the lid on.  Add 1/4 cup of water if needed.  Mix all remaining ingredients together.  Pour over pork and cook another 2 hrs. allowing the sauce to cook down to a glaze.

Comment:  I love port tenderloin.  It's tender, moist, and usually very lean.  I love it enough that I keep 2 - 3 in the freezer at all times.  Another reason I love tenderloin is because it's so versatile.  With this dish the mixture of soy sauce, mustard, and garlic gave it a delicious blend.  The chili sauce and honey gave it sweetness yet a slight heat and the onion added yet another flavor making the whole combination perfect.  If you like tenderloin, you must try this one.
