This Crockpot Apple Bacon Pork Roast Recipe is so simple, yet looks so elegant on the table. Plus it is kid friendly. The entire family will love it!
This recipe is amazingly easy and a hit with everyone in my house! I got some great fall deals on groceries this week, and decided to get creative! I came up with this Crockpot Apple Bacon Pork Roast Recipe
How to Make
I sliced up a couple of great firm apples. My favs are Fujis.
I then took a 3 -4 lb Pork Loin Roast and sliced it into 1-inch pieces about 3/4 of the way through. That way it is still attached as one roast.
Place the roast in your crockpot and place the apple slices in the slits in the roast. If you have extra apples just scatter them through the crockpot. Then top the roast with slices of bacon. I pre-cooked mine about 1/2 -3/4 of the way done so it would be crisp when finished. You can add the bacon completely uncooked; it will not be as crisp when done.
Sprinkle the whole thing with about 1/3 cup brown sugar.
I placed the lid on the top and let it cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low. Time will vary depending on your crockpot. Keep in mind not to lift the lid to peek! Each time you do, it adds to the cook time.
When it is finished you end up with amazingly succulent and tasty Crockpot Apple Bacon Pork Roast that the entire family will love! I made some of this amazing apple glaze to go with it when served. It will knock your socks off!
This recipe is naturally gluten free! Just check your ingredients for any hidden sources of gluten; mustard, bacon.
Serving this Apple Bacon Pork Roast is easy. Since it is pre sliced, just slice down the segments for individual servings. We enjoyed this roast with some mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. It would also be amazing with some roasted potatoes.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
