Ingredients

  • 1 2 lb. pork loin
  • 4 large or 6 small apples I like a combination of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (or coconut palm sugar)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon nutmeg
  • teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Season pork liberally with salt and pepper (it's a big piece of meat, so make sure that you season it really well). Spray slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Place pork in bottom of slow cooker. Top with apples, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Cover and cook on LOW for about 6-8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker. Slice the pork or shred with two forks. Serve with apples.
  • FREEZER OPTION: Place sliced apples in a large zip-top bag. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger and toss to coat. Season pork liberally with salt and pepper (it's a big piece of meat, so make sure that you season it really well). Place pork in the bag on top of the apples. Squeeze all of the air out of the bag, seal, and place in the freezer. When ready to cook, thaw the bag in the refrigerator overnight. Spray a slow cooker with nonstick spray. Dump contents of the bag into the slow cooker (pork should be on the bottom with most of the apples on top). Cover and cook on LOW for about 6-8 hours. Remove pork from slow cooker. Slice the pork or shred with two forks. Serve with apples.
