Bon's Crock-Pot Pumpkin Ale Pork Tenderloin

“I made this up playing around last year. Nice & easy ! Pumpkin Ale is only available Oct.-early Dec. I take the apples and make homemade applesauce to go with. The shoestring apples make a nice little nest next to the pork. The au jus is sweet with a touch of spice & the pork comes out fork tender.”
