Coconut Apple Curry Pork Tenderloin (Crock Pot)

I made this up after reading several recipes.  It turned out really yummy.  I used what I had on hand so read the whole page to see what I'll do differently next time.  :)  

5 Lbs. Lean Pork Tenderloin 
1 Can of Coconut Milk
1 Medium Onion
3-4 Large Apples (pealed, cored and chopped into chunks) 
1/2 Cup Honey 
2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp. Fish Sauce
4 tsp. (1 1/3 Tbsp.) Curry Powder
4 tsp. (1 1/3 Tbsp.) Cumin 
2 tsp. Sea Salt

Directions: Combine ingredients in the crock pot.  Cook for 6-8 hours. (Longer if desired.)  I served mine with roasted Asparagus, roasted Brussels Sprouts and chopped Bacon...cuz I'm Paleo like that.  ;)

NEXT TIME: I'm going to make the this recipe into a soup.  I'd add three or four more cans of coconut milk. Swap pork for chicken. Add fresh ginger while cooking and fresh cilantro at the end. Maybe add potatoes and carrots.
