Crock Pot Pork Loin

I decided to mix it up a bit this week and cook a pork loin for dinner. I found a recipe here for cooking the pork loin in the crock pot.. and y'all know how much I love a good crock pot recipe. It turned out to be rather easy, and I was able to add mushrooms into the mix to give it a little more flavor.
The instructions were simple -- just place the pork loin and 1 packet of dry onion soup mix in the crockpot, mix together 3/4 cup of red wine (I may have used a little more..), 1 cup water, 3 tablespoons soy sauce, and 3 tablespoons minced garlic and pour the mixture over the pork loin, making sure it gets coated completely. It really doesn't get much simpler than that. Place the crock pot on low heat for about 4 hours, and let that bad boy cook away. Delicious smells will waft through your house in the meantime.
I had plenty of leftovers (strangely enough, I'm not capable of eating a 2 pound pork loin by myself in one sitting), and they seem to hold up well in the fridge. This will probably serve as my dinner for the next several nights, which is totally fine by me.
