Slow Cooker Pork Loin + Veggies
Who doesn't need simple, healthy recipes to add to their menu rotation? I am always trying to create and find recipes that are tried and true, taste great and are simple to throw together. In this season with small kiddos. Although I would love to, I can't spend a whole afternoon cutting and mixing and the whole nine. I know a lot of you are the same way, and I have been thinking up some seasonal fall recipes that meet that need, so stay tuned!
We've been enjoying this meal for a couple months now, and really enjoy the flavor and ease of it! For those of you who work outside the home, a big concern can be random slow cooker times that don't match up with the times you are out of the house. This will hopefully match up with most work schedules. For me, I usually put it together while Rae eats her breakfast :)
The meat is so tender and flavorful, and all of the veggies soak up that flavor as well. This has become our simple and comforting Sunday dinner for when we get home from church pretty late.
- 1 pound pork loin
- salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup water
