Saucy Pork Loin and Potatoes

Lean cuts of pork such as tenderloin are high in protein, low in fat and include more B-vitamins, such as thiamin, niacin, B6 and B12, than many other types of meat. This slow-cooker recipe for Saucy Pork Loin and Potatoes is not only easy to make, but delicious. What sets is apart? The sauce.
