This recipe was found on Parenting.com. They have a few, great recipes on this site, that I have tried! They have a great foody section and if you have time you should check it out: Recipes
- 1 2 1/2 – 3 pound boneless pork-loin roast
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 medium sweet onion, cut into thin wedges
- 1/2 cup apple cider or apple juice
- 2 Jonagold or McIntosh apples, cored and thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 bag (16 ounces) coleslaw mix
1.If the roast wont fit in your 4- to 5-quart slow cooker, trim it and save the pieces for stir-fry later in the week. Then sprinkle the roast with thyme, salt, and pepper. In a large skillet, brown meat on all sides in hot oil.
2.Layer the onion on the bottom of your slow cooker. Place roast on top and pour on the apple cider- we prefer cider because it has a bit more fiber. Cover and cook on high for 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Toss apples with lemon juice and cinnamon. Add them and the coleslaw mix to your slow cooker. Cover and heat 10 minutes more.
3.Remove the roast and place it on a platter. Let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the vegetables and apple slices to the platter. Drizzle any remaining cooking juices over meat and vegetables.
