Pour 1 cup of water, 3/4 cup of red wine and 3 tablespoons of soy sauce into the slow cooker. Add a 2-pound pork tenderloin roast, and turn the roast several times to coat it with the mixture. Cover the top of the roast with 3 tablespoons of minced garlic and a dash of black pepper. Cover and cook on low for four hours. Serve the cooking liquid on the side as sauce.

Another recipe calls for heating 2 tablespoons of oil in a skillet. Brown the roast on each side in the skillet, and transfer to the slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix together 1 can of cranberry sauce, 1/2 cup of Catalina salad dressing and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Pour mixture over the pork roast, cover, and cook on low for four to five hours, or until the meat is tender.
