I love making this slow-cooked dish for chilly fall dinners with my family—the comforting apple-cinnamon aroma fills our whole house. The pork roast tastes even better served with homemade mashed potatoes.—Rachel Schultz, Lansing, Michigan
This recipe was adapted from one my mom used to make when I was growing up. It has all of our favorite "fall" flavors, such as apples, pork roast, sauerkraut and potatoes. I often coat the slow cooker insert with cooking spray to prevent the potatoes and meat from sticking.—Tonya Swain, Seville, Ohio
Sweet apple undertones lend special flair to Kathleen Hendrick’s low-calorie pork loin. The Alexandria, Kentucky cook tops it with gravy for down-home appeal, creating a slimmed-down dish that’ll keep them coming back for more!
A creamy peanut butter sauce coats moist slices of pork in this delectable dish from Amy Van Orman of Rockford, Michigan. “This recipe is from a friend in my cooking club, and it's always a favorite,” she notes.
I use this recipe often when entertaining. I set out all the toppings, and folks have fun assembling their own carnitas. Because I can prepare everything in advance, I get to spend more time with my guests. —Tracy Byers, Corvallis, Oregon
