This festive recipe is perfect for your New Year's Eve celebration. Because you make this in the slow cooker, it's easy enough for any night of the week.


Units Scale
  • 1 pork tenderloin
  • 2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice (divided)
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (divided)
  • Zest of one orange
  • Zest of one lime
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 garlic cloves, finely chopped (add as many as you like)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh oregano leaves (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder


  1. In a small saucepan, bring one cup of orange juice and ½ cup lime juice to a boil. Lower heat to simmer and cook until liquid is reduced in half, about 25 minutes. (You can skip this step and just add all the juice to the slow cooker at one time. Reducing the juice concentrates the flavor though, helping it come through stronger.)
  2. In a large slow cooker add juice reduction, remaining orange and lime juice, all zest, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Stir to combine. Add tenderloin and turn to coat. Spoon marinade on top of any exposed meat. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 - 8 hours, turning meat several times through the cooking process. Meat will easily pull apart when ready.
