One of my friends told me her goal for the new year was to eat more pork. She avoids red meat and said she was burned out on chicken and fish.
Pork is a lovely meat that goes well with so many flavors.
A mild pork roast can be dressed up for a fancy meal, made sweet or savory for a family supper, or turned into a veritable masterpiece with the right cooking techniques.
I love to make these in the slow cooker. Just plop it in and forget about it!
In this recipe, the apples and the onions work together to create a sweet and spicy flavor, and the juices help keep your pork roast moist.
Apple Cinnamon Pork Roast
1 (3 lb) boneless pork roast
1 Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
1 white onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tsp cinnamon

Score thin slits into the top of the pork roast. Insert apple slices and onion slices.
Place roast in the crockery of the slow cooker. Pour apple juice and apple cider over roast. Add extra apples and onions to the crock. Sprinkle roast with cinnamon, salt and pepper.
Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 6 hours, opening lid only once to baste with juices.
Serve sliced or shredded.
