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!
1 tablespoon coconut oil
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!
I’m starting the week off with a slow cooker recipe. This one is from my favorite slow cooker cookbook Paleolithic Slow Cooker. This is my new favorite slow cooker recipe. When I opened my front door after getting home from work I almost drooled. It smelled SO good! And is tastes just as good as it smells! Like all of my slow cooker recipes, I made a huge roast and ate off of it all week.
1 4 pound pork roast
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons coarse black pepper
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground cloves
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/3 cup maple syrup – grade B
2 pounds frozen organic mixed berries
Turn your slow cooker on high while you get the ingredients ready. Place the pork roast in the bottom of the slow cooker and season it with salt and pepper. Combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, orange zest, and maple syrup and mix together. Pour over meat. Pour the frozen berries over the meat and and place the lid on the slow cooker. Cook on low for 10 hours.
This is truly a delicious meal! I hope you like it as much as I did. Happy cooking!
