This week I thought I’d link up my crock pot recipe with my blogging friends Alesha of Full Time Mama and Amanda of Coping with Frugality. Each week they host a Delicious Dish Tuesday and bloggers link up their latest recipes! I recently made a recipe given to me by my friend, Melissa, and I was beyond pleased with how it turned out so you know I have to share with you!
When my husband and I went to the meat counter a few weeks ago they had pork sirloin roasts on sale. We never buy pork and thought it sounded different and wanted to try something new so we bought one. One of my best friends has been telling me about a recipe she makes using pork roasts so I finally had the perfect chance to try it! It’s called “Apple Pork Roast”.
Ingredients you’ll need:
1-Pork Roast (we used a pork sirloin roast)
6-Organic apples (I personally used Fiji and Gala but you can use whatever you prefer or a variety)
3/4 tsp Organic Cinnamon
Organic Apple Cider (or 100% juice if cider not available)
Trim the pork of excess fat and place in a slow cooker and add cider or juice until the tenderloin is completely covered. (You get a deeper flavor in the pork if you can use cider) Cook on low for 8 hours.
Peel, core and dice the apples. In a medium sized sauce pan add the diced apples, 1 cup of the cider (or juice) and the 3/4 tsp cinnamon. Cook over medium heat until apples are soft and it’s the consistency of a chunky applesauce and it will look like the picture below.
Slice the pork roast, or shred, and serve topped with applesauce mixture. We shredded ours and served with mac-n-cheese, corn, and rolls. It was delicious!!!
What do you make with pork roasts?
This makes a great meal for those chilly days and very little prep after cooking the roast all day in the crock pot!
