  1. I made this yesterday, and it was okay. The recipe doesn't say where to add the salt, but I assumed it was part of the spice rub, as it was the second ingredient listed. The glaze was very watery. It had a thicker consistency when I first poured it in the slow cooker than when it was done. The tenderloin I used was 1.5 lbs, and it was falling apart after 4.5 hours. There was no way I could cut it as shown in the photo. So I ended up with a pile of shredded pork with a watery glaze. The orange flavor wasn't very strong, maybe it needs some orange zest as well as the juice. I doubt that I'd make it again.
