Slow-Cooker Pork with Apples and Onions

Another storm. Another snow day. (Not that we're complaining). A perfect day for a slow-cooked meal, so we give you pork with apples and onions. This recipe is almost too simple - layer the ingredients in the slow cooker and leave it alone for 3 hours. Then eat it. Amazing! And it made the house smell like apples! We served it with chunky mashed potatoes. Let it snow!


Ingredients:

1 Braeburn apple, peeled and sliced
2 pork sirloin chops, cut in half
salt and pepper to taste
1 Cortland apple, peeled and sliced
2 teaspoons Red Monkey Stone Ground Spicy Mustard (you could use plain ground mustard, but this one adds a nice kick)
6 pearl onions, peeled
4 cippolini onions, peeled
1 1/2 cups apple cider
1 sprig fresh rosemary

In a 3-quart slow-cooker, layer the ingredients in the order they are listed. Cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, allowing the slow-cooker to do all the work while you browse A Couple in the Kitchen. Enjoy!!!

Pieces of pork layered between apple slices then seasoned

Thrown in some onions

Apple cider adds extra apple flavor


Pork loves rosemary

Low frills cooking is sometimes the very best! It goes back to the days of working folk who needed good food with the minimum of effort (because they were too busy working hard to survive in a tough world!)... just like you guys shoveling out after all that snow!

Oh that pork must have been sooo good! Another reason to whip out my slow cooker again! I only use it a few times a year, but this winter I've been working with it over time.

Yum! My bff makes something similar, but not in the slow cooker. I adore crock pots because I get to enjoy the rest of my day and come home to a yummy smelling house. I'm totally telling her about this.
