Smoked Tenderloin & Ranch Potatoes

Happy Sunday Everyone! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Today, I'd like to share with you a great recipe for those who like to grill! We do a lot of grilling at our house. I prefer the grill over the oven any day! I'm also very lucky to have a husband that will grill no matter what the weather is like! We've grilled plenty of times in the snow!!

First and foremost, let me introduce you to the best kitchen tool ever! It's a Pampered Chef slicer. I love this for cutting potatoes! It works great when I make Ranch potatoes :)  Yum! Yum!

This is what my Ranch potatoes look like when I first throw them into the crockpot. I normally make these in the oven but I wanted to try something different! You will need to slice enough potatoes for your family and add butter and Ranch Dip Mix (seasoning) throughout the crockpot. I normally use a stick of butter to keep the potatoes from drying out.

This is what your potatoes will look like when they are finished! If you cook them in the oven, it will take about an hour. Be sure to cover your dish with aluminum foil for oven cooking. If you fix them in the crockpot, it takes approximately 3 to 5 hours depending on how many potatoes you use! I cook mine on low until all the potatoes are fork tender. Then, you can just switch it to warm and wait until the rest of your meal is done!

This is my hubby's masterpiece! He has become quite the griller! He smoked this pork tenderloin for about 6 hours on our big grill! We use McCormick's Pork Rub on the outside of the tenderloin to give it a nice crunch! The rub holds all the flavors in the meat nicely and makes it so tender that you can cut the meat with a butter knife! Be sure you cook it with the fat side up if you are going to be placing it on the grill! A tip from Mr. Grill-Extraordinaire himself!

This is a very yummy meal and requires a little work but not so much that it is overwhelming!
