It’s apple season, and boy, we have a lot of them.  My daughter had a field trip apple picking and I was a chaperone.  Now we have 2 bags of apples and I’ve been trying to come up with some recipes to use some of them up. I made this crockpot pork and apples and it was a hit!

Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Apples

I’m always using my slow cooker.  I just bought a new one because my other one went kaput.  

The black bowl had a huge crack down the bottom and was leaking liquid all over the place.  It felt so good to open the box and see that nice clean bowl!  Isn’t it funny how the little things make us happy!

Anyway…I’ve been trying to use my crockpot more since school started.  I have kids in soccer, lacrosse, football, and baseball.  We also have faith formation and guitar lessons in there too!  I barely have enough time to cook.  

Sometimes I start dinner when the kids leave for school because that’s the only time I have to cook anything.  When we get home at night, we just heat it back up.  Slow cooker meals van be hit or miss with my kids.  This is one they LOVE!  

They tend to think beef is dry so I’ve been sticking with pork and chicken.  Hopefully I can get some time to throw some new recipes up here and share them with you.

Tools to make this recipe

 I went to a Pampered Chef party years and years ago and didn’t want to spend a lot of money so I ended up purchasing this exact apple corer and slicer.  I thought it as a silly purchase at the time, but I LOVE it and use it probably 5 times a week.  If you don’t have one, get it!



Here’s a basic Crock Pot Slow Cooker.  It’s the one I have and it’s inexpensive and does the job well.

    What other sides would you suggest? We aren’t sweet potato fans. Thanks!

      What about butternut squash? Kale? If neither of those, I would just do green beans and mashed potatoes. Most people like those.

    I was just showing my husband this recipe, today is the first day of October although it is supposed to be in the 90s this week. Fall food comes to mind. We both like sweet potatoes, but I was thinking of fried cabbage with onions.

    I have a frozen pork loin, do I need to thaw it first?

    • Holly says:

      Yes, you can. You’ll need to cook it longer though.
