Apple Pork Roast

My meat CSA rocks. I love the variety of cuts of meat that I get and it challenges me to be a culinary creative. My hubby was home on vacation this week, so I had to amp up my cooking game for a few days. The idea of a pork roast at first just had me thinking hot sticky cooking. Not too good after these few days of scorching temperatures. So I decided to use a crockpot and lighten the dish up with the sweet taste of apples. This was a super easy recipe and was just so delicious.

  • 3 to 4 pound pork shoulder roast seasoned with salt and pepper.
  • 3 apples peeled and chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped roughly
  • 1/2 to 3/4 of jar of cinnamon flavored applesauce
  • cinnamon
Place the onions and apples at the bottom of the crockpot. Sprinkle with some cinnamon. Take the seasoned pork roast and place in a frying pan.  Just brown the outsides.  Then place the roast on top of the apples and onions.  Pour the applesauce over the roast.  Sprinkle a little more cinnamon on top.  Cover and cook on high for 8 hours.
The meat is so tender and goes well with the soft sweet apples.
