Putting your Slow Cooker to use during the week is one of the best ways to get dinner on the table fast. Each and every time I use my Slow Cooker, I’m reminded just how easy it is to prepare dinner, especially during a busy weeknight.
This Slow Cooker Pork Roast with the addition of Apples and Onions brings together flavors of Fall.
The original recipe is from one of your favorite blogs (and ours too), Pioneer Woman. We changed it a bit and adapted the recipe for the Slow Cooker.
After browning the Pork Roast on all sides, into the Slow Cooker it went along with Apple Cider, Apples, Onions, Beef Stock and a Bay Leaf. Then simmered on low for about 6 hours and the roast simply fell apart.
I used a Boneless Pork Shoulder Picnic Roast from Walmart. Surprisingly enough, pork is very budget friendly right now, it’s less than most beef including ground beef and right around the same price as chicken. I paid $2.38 per pound, prices may vary at your local Walmart.
