Slow-Cooked Pork Tenderloin w. Tomatoes and Mushrooms Recipe

While it’s cooking, oddly enough, this recipe smells like pizza! And when it’s ready to eat, the pork is so tender that it simply falls apart, mixing and mingling with the flavors of the tomatoes, mushrooms, herbs, and spices. You can also add potatoes or some other vegetables. I’ll show you the technique.

Slow-Cooked Pork Tenderloin w. Tomatoes and Mushrooms

  • 2 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 cups button mushrooms
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 10-15 baby potatoes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper

The process…

Wash the mushrooms and cut away the ends of the stems.


Brown the tenderloin by cooking it on a skillet. Cook until each side is golden brown (a few minutes per side, including the ends).


In the slow cooker, put the crushed tomatoes with the wine, garlic, oregano, basil, paprika, cumin, caraway, salt, and pepper.


Stir well, then add the mushrooms.
