Default Easy Crockpot Beef or Pork Tenderloin Roast

EASY CROCKPOT BEEf or PORK TENDERLOIN ROAST

Season roast on both sides to taste with salt or salt substitute, dehydrated onion, and/or any other seasonings you like.

Place in crockpot and add water to about 2/3-3/4 up to the top of the roast.

Put the lid on the crockpot, of course. LOL

For half a roast, I cook it on low for only about 5 hours so the meat won't get dried out. For a whole roast I cook it on low for only about 6 hours.

Then I carefully take the meat out and let it rest, covered, for about ten minutes to let the juices settle so the all the juices won't run out when first cut. THEN cut the cooked meat.

You can enjoy the meat right away, or let it cool in the juices and reheat later.

I put the hot juice into a casserole dish to let cool slightly while the meat is resting. Then add the cut meat back into the juice. The next day, any leftover meat will be even more flavorful and juicy.
