  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh rosemary optional


  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 6 cloves garlic smashed
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning


  • Pat dry pork tenderloins with paper towels.
  • Combine in a small bowl the RUB ingredients; whisk to combine.
  • Take the rub and sprinkle it all over the pork. Using your hands rub in into the pork well.
  • Add olive oil to a large skillet and set over medium heat; add pork and sear for a couple of minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
  • Combine the sauce ingredients and add the mixture to the slow cooker.
  • Place pork in the slow cooker.
  • Add some fresh rosemary.
  • Cover slow cooker with a lid and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours, or on HIGH for 3 hours.
  • Check for doneness by inserting an instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the meat; pork is done when internal temperature reaches 145˚F.
  • Remove pork from slow cooker and transfer to a cutting board; cover it with foil and let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
  • Slice and serve. Garnish with chopped parsley and some rosemary.
