Crockpot Honey Pork & Apples Tips
Place a pork loin roast in your crockpot fat side up (if there is any). Make slices every inch or so and place apple slices in them.
I used fuji apples because that is what I had, but this is excellent with Granny Smiths or any other firm apple.
Drizzle the entire roast with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon. THAT IS IT! Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 - 3 hours or low for 4 - 5 hours depending on the size of your roast. Obviously the bigger it is the longer it will take.
I cooked mine on high. This leaves the roast tender but keeps it from falling apart as easily when you slice it. I was able to plate up the entire roast and cut it into "chops" beautifully.
I served my Crockpot Honey Pork & Apples with a side salad and Baked Sweet Potatoes.
Did you know you can make Crockpot Sweet Potatoes in a second crockpot and just stay out of the kitchen for the day!
The entire family loved this one! The flavor of the apples, honey, and cinnamon really permeates the entire pork roast. It is savory with a hint of fall sweetness. Just perfect!
