Garlic-Apple Pork Roast
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Cook: 8 hours + standing
WOW! This was awesome! Even better than I anticipated! I used a pork tenderloin, because that's what I had. I did sear it, like others suggested, with rubbing in the seasoned salt and pepper. I also used apple juice in place of the water. And because the pork tenderloin is smaller than a roast, I only let it cook about 5 hours. Can't wait to use up the leftover in the Cuban sandwiches I had planned with the leftovers. A REAL keeper!
You can't really miss with a simple recipe like this, and cooked in a slow cooker to boot! Other jellies could be substituted for the apple jelly, if you don't have any on hand. If you do, try peeling and dicing some Granny Smith or other cooking apples to cook along with the roast. Delicious!
This was easy to make and good for leftovers in sandwiches.
I marinated my pork loin overnight with apple juice and garlic.i put on the seasoning then I seared It in the pan .instead of water I used apple juice.i put it in there for 4 hours.I had a 3.75 pound pork loin.It actually sliced but if you desired for it to be shredded it would have great recipe.It was absolutely delicious
The meat was dry and tough. I couldn't find apple jelly and so used apple butter, but otherwise followed the recipe. Sauce was fine - the meat just wasn't good. Very disappointing. Anything that is in the crock pot all day should NOT be tough. The follow up recipe for the Spanish Rice, though, was actually really good.
This roast was a cinch to prepare, and was so flavorful and tender! I used a bone-in pork roast as that is what I had on hand. I will use the leftovers to make pulled pork. I think the sweetness from the apple jelly will add delicious flavor to the barbecue sauce. Easy and scrumptious-will definitely make again! VFE
Love this! I did increase the garlic - double - no vampires in this house and added a bit more salt. By 8 hours it shredded for me, but that's ok, it was still really tasty
I followed the recipe as written, but it only needed to cook for 4-5 hours. The meat was very tender, but this was quite bland.
Very easy and tasty. Quite a lot for our little family of three; it will last for weeks. I don't usually like pork, but I'm finding that if I cook it in the slow cooker, I really like the texture and flavor.
Ok, so I'm guessing that you could use just about any kind of jelly and this would still be good. I didn't have apple jelly, so substituted a half jar of white wine jelly along with mixed berry preserves. Yum!
