Chest Freezer Awesomeness!

Several years ago I bought a chest freezer and it's probably been one of my best tools for saving money. I just got back from the local grocery store (Shaws) and stocked up on some pork tenderloin:

Pork Tenderloin Deal

Mmmm... Pork

In case you are too lazy to click (and I don't blame you), I paid ~$16 for 8 pounds of pork tenderloin. According to Shaws that is typically $48 worth of pork tenderloin... saving me $32 (as if I would ever pay that full price - ha!)

To be honest, I didn't know how much pork tenderloin typically costs. I wouldn't have thought to even look up the costs of pork tenderloin, but I know that beef tenderloin is typically expensive... and one of the best cuts. So I figured it must be similar for pigs right?

In doing a few internet searches, I quickly found that $3.99/lb. was a very good price and that $4.99/lb. is more typical. And many of those results came from 2010 and 2011. So this deal at $1.99/lb. looked like a tremendous deal... one of those that it is worth clearing some space in the chest freezer for.

Truth be told, I would have bought a lot more, but the eventual divorce lawyer would quickly outstrip the savings. I could have created a lot more space as the packages aren't very big.

This is a long way to ask a question that was probably better suited for Twitter. Anyone have any favorite pork tenderloin recipes? I prefer ones involving a slow cooker. Yes, there are internet searches for that as well, but if people have some favorites, I'd love to give them a try.
