I used ingredients I had on hand, including a lean pork loin that weighed 1.875 pounds (30 ounces). You can makeover this recipe and put the weight of your pork loin in the calculation as appropriate.

Cooked in Slow Cooker on Low Setting, 6 hours (7 hours for larger cuts of pork loin).

Have aluminum foil on hand to tent it, in the last step.
