Pork. It’s the other white meat.
Lately, I’ve been feeling so ready for Fall, I think I’ve been trying to coerce it by making dishes, doing activities, and dressing as if it were already here. As I write this, it’s a bit chilly out, but in my book, if the leaves aren’t colorful, it’s still Summer. Cheers to wishful thinking. This warm apple-cinnamony aroma will fill your whole house.
Apple Cinnamon Slow Cooker Porkloin
3 pounds porkloin
3 red delicious apples, sliced
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 cup red onion, sliced
Lay several apples in the base of the slow cooker. Slice slits into porkloin horizontally about 3/4 inch deep. Drizzle honey into slits and fill each with an apple slice.
Transfer porkloin to slow cooker. Drizzle with any remaining honey and cover with apples and onions.
The onions help cut the flavor, otherwise this would be a huge mouthful of unrelenting sweetness. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cook on low for 7 hours.
