Savory Pork Loin in the Crockpot

It’s that time of year…time to get out those Crockpots, dust them off and cook up a delicious comfort meal! During the Summer months, I often think about using the Crockpot to cut down on heat in the kitchen, but somehow it doesn’t seem to get done. But during the Fall and Winter months, we cook at least one meal every week in the Crockpot.

There are so many great things about cooking your dinner in the Crockpot, but the thing I love most is the ease…throw all the ingredients in, turn it on and let it cook away. This Savory Pork Loin has the sweetness and tartness of apple juice and honey but also the warm, savory flavors of garlic and Dijon mustard.

October is a very special month…it’s Crocktober, when slow cooking season goes into full swing! Whether you are cooking up a delicious meal for your family or using up some apples and making applesauce, your Crockpot can come in pretty handy!

With the rising cost of groceries, and especially meat, we need to trim our budget whenever possible. Recently I picked a Pork Loin at Walmart for around $8, bought it home and cut it in half. The first half was made into Barbecue Pork Sandwiches and the second half into this Savory Pork Loin.
