Exclamation How long does tenderloin need in crockpot?

I have already searched and only found a few things that people have cooked slowly overnight, but, I don't have that long. I can cook it in the oven if need be, but, would rather put it in the crock for a few hours, if possible? There are 2 @ 2 lbs each in a bbq marinade. It is 3:30 here now, we eat at 6:30 - 7 pm normally. Any ideas? Or just forget it for today and cook it on my next day off? Thought I would try something new for DH besides chicken.

I'd like to know this, too. I've made a tenderloin twice in the slow cooker but both times it came out really, really dry.

Tenderloin shouldn't be cooked in a crockpot, IMO. It's a TENDERloin after all.

Roast it or grill it.

That's fine, but, no roasting pan, so, advise please

Do you have an oven-proof skillet?

No, my stainless steel pan was lost by my lovely older son when he moved back home. Actually, he left it at his old place. I have a turkey pan, but, it awfully big for 2 small tenderloins.

so, can I just wrap it up in foil and cook it a few hours then? It should retain it's juices that way, right?

Are you trying to cook the tenderloin to well done? Most recipes I’ve seen, and all of the ones I’ve done, call for searing the loin, then only cook the tenderloin in the oven 20 – 30 minutes to an internal temperature of 120. Let it rest 5 – 10 minutes so the residual heat finishes it off, and you should have a perfect medium rare.

Edited to add: Whoops, I was talking about a BEEF Tenderloin!

For a Pork Tenderloin, I always grill them. It only takes about 20 – 25 minutes over medium high coals. I flip it/roll it every 6 or so minutes, and it always comes out great.

I think you'd overcook it that way, frankly. It doesn't have a lot of fat and will dry out.

This is a pork tenderloin, right?

Dry heat, uncovered. 325 or 350. Check after about 1 1/2 hours. Should get to 155 for slightly pink and 170 for well done.
