Caramel Apple Pork Loin


Slow Cooker Caramel Apple Pork Loin

We have a busy week and I am using my slow cooker as much as possible to try to make my life easier. I bought a pork loin last week and had planned to try a Honey Apple Pork Loin. I was putting all the ingredients in the slow cooker when I realized I was out of Honey.

What do I do? Improvise! We have all had the times when we are making a recipe and don’t have the exact ingredient or not enough, don’t give up. Find a way to make it work for you!

I had a container of Caramel Apple Dip, the really thick kind, in the refrigerator. Will this taste good? Let’s see!

Verdict:

This was delicious! Both of my kids said the carrots had never tasted so good. The best wait to eat the pork loin was with a piece of the apple and the broth.

I served this with a side of mashed potatoes and a green salad.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lb. pork loin, trimmed
  • 16 oz. baby carrots
  • 4 macintosh apples, sliced (I left the skins on)
  • 1/2 cup caramel apple dip, (The thick dipping kind not the runny stuff you pour over ice cream)

Directions:

  1. Place pork loin in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Cover with apple slices and carrots.
  3. Place Caramel Apple Dip on top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4.
  4. Remove loin from slow cooker before serving and allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
