My husband absolutely LOVES this pork tenderloin. Depending on the season and weather it can be made in the crokpot or on the grill. Here is the recipe:

1 Boneless Pork Tenderloin

1/2 cup Pure Maple Syrup

1 can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce

Salt and Pepper to taste

(1/2 cup water if you are putting in crockpot)

(Foil if you are cooking on the grill)

(Crock Pot Method)

Cut slits across the pork tenderloin being sure not to cut all the way through. Sear on both sides in a frying pan for 2 minutes per side. Place in crock pot, add water, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Using about half a can of the Chipotle Peppers and Sauce, pour in and shove the peppers into the slits on the meat. Pour Syrup onto the meat and brush across with a basting brush. Cook on low all day.

(Grill Method)

Cut slits across the pork tenderloin being sure not to cut all the way through. Sear on both sides in a frying pan for 2 minutes per side. Take enough foil to wrap the entire tenderloin and lay flat on counter. Place tenderloin in the middle. Using about half a can of the Chipotle Peppers and Sauce, pour on and shove the peppers into the slits on the meat. Pour Syrup onto the meat and brush across with a basting brush. Wrap in foil and cook on top rack of grill until cooked through. ( If it is a very large piece of meat, you may want to cut in half long ways to reduce cooking times) Make sure to allow plenty of time to cook the meat, because this is not a recipe that you can cook last minute.

Serve with steamed veggies, salad, mac and cheese, or green beans. This would also be great with baked sweet potatoes.
