Crock Pot Herb Pork Loin, is not only jammed packed with flavor it will save a lot of time in the kitchen. The kids are officially out of school which means my summer is here. Our summer is already packed with events and I am finding that I have a hard time fitting dinner prep into our busy schedule. So I like to make crock pot meals. By cooking dinner in the crock pot I don’t have to turn on the oven and heat up the house and it saves me from grabbing take out at the last minute.
After cooking pork loin in the crock pot for 6 hours, it pretty much falls apart. I didn’t have any problems with getting my family to eat it. How can you say no to a recipe that requires very little prep work and is so easy to make.
When people ask me what kind of crock pot to buy, I always recommend buying a 6-quart crock pot. I also love being able to program the cooking time. Once the cooking time is done, it automatically switches to the warm setting. Seriously, how cool is that? It will just keep dinner warm until you are ready to eat.
With love from my kitchen to yours,
