Again, this isn’t a summer meal but I cooked it anyway. I so prefer cool/cold weather cooking… casseroles, slow cooked roasts, and that sort of thing. There are so many comfort foods that are more suited for the cooler weather and I can’t wait to get back to that kind of cooking.
While the crock pot produces some wonderful meals without heating up the kitchen, I find you still don’t feel like eating anything that “heavy” during the summer months. I think this recipe qualifies as that type of meal but it didn’t stop Chris and Dillon from digging in!
I use this same recipe to cook a beef roast because it always comes out tender and very flavourful.
Here are the ingredients I used to make it… minus the water.
I placed the pork tenderloin in an aluminum foil/lightly greased 9 x 13 baking pan and sprinkled it with the salt and pepper.
In a large measuring cup, I put the cream soup, onion soup mix, minced garlic and water and whisked it well.
I poured this mixture over top of the pork tenderloin, trying to make sure as many of the onions from the soup sat on top of the tenderloin.
And baked it at 375 degrees for about 60 minutes covered with foil and another half hour without the foil, until it was cooked through and starting to brown on top.
Then sliced and served it with some veggies and potatoes! A delicious meal made easy!
