Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari for gluten free
  • 1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 1 pounds each pork tenderloins, fat trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a slow cooker, whisk together the rice vinegar, water, soy sauce, honey, canola oil, ginger and garlic.
  • Add the pork tenderloins and turn to coat with the sauce.
  • Cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours, or until the pork is very tender and falls apart when pulled with a fork.
