Crockpot Pork Roast

Thanks to SnoWhite (once again) for this recipe, we enjoyed the most delicious pork roast ever last night.

Crockpot Pork Roast - adapted from SnoWhite
2-3 lb pork roast
4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
3 T brown sugar
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup apple juice

1. Trim excess fat off roast. Season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 500. Cook for 20 minutes to seal juices.

2. Place peeled, cored, chopped apples in the bottom of a crockpot sprayed with cooking spray.

3. Place roast on top. Cover with sliced onions.

4. In a small bowl mix sugar, ginger, cinnamon, applesauce and juice. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on low until an internal temperature of 170 is reached. SnoWhite's recipe said 8-10 hours but mine was cooked by 6 1/2 hours because I had a smaller roast.

I don't have any pictures of the final product because we had company over and I forgot to take photos along the way. Just believe me when I say it was one of the tastiest pork roasts I've ever had! Thanks SnoWhite!

Makes 4-5 servings.
