I don’t eat pork all that often but it tends to do really well in the slow cooker so I’ve been eating it more often. Since my schedule is unbelievably crazy with my new job, commute, and school I’ve been doing slow cooking a lot more. This recipe is unbelievably yummy. I wanted to lick the plate clean after eating!
2 pounds pork loin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper
2.5 apples cut into slices
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Turn slow cooker on high while you get ingredients ready. In a large frying pan, place the coconut oil and allow it to heat. Place the pork loin in the frying pan and brown on all sides. Transfer the pork to your slow cooker. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper. Put the apple slices in the slow cooker around the meat. In a measuring cup, stir together the apple juice, maple syrup and ground ginger. Pour the mixture over the pork. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook for 10 hours on low.
I couldn’t believe how juicy and tasty this was! I ate the entire two pounds of meat myself over a week’s time. This is probably my favorite slow cooker recipe to date! Happy cooking!
