Apricot Glazed Bacon Pork Tenderloin

Looking for a simple yet delicious crockpot pork tenderloin recipe? I love pork tenderloins for an easy, healthy weeknight meal. They become super tender and juicy when cooked at a low temperature in the crockpot making them a perfect dinner for busy weeknights.

I usually get a plain pork tenderloin to save on sodium, but this time I decided to try Smithfield's apple smoked bacon pork tenderloin, and it was delicious. I created an apricot glaze to go over it, which turned out to be sweet, salty, and savory heaven!

This recipe is a little higher in sodium and fat from the bacon toppings and seasonings, but it can certainly still fit into a healthy lifestyle! Just pair with some nutrient dense vegetables and you have yourself a well rounded meal!
