Slow Cooker Pork & Apples

I just wanted to share this super easy recipe that I recently tried at home.  It turned out so delicious and was a big hit at our house, so I thought I'd share it with all of blogland.


1 Pork Tenderloin

4-5 Granny Smith Apples



Poultry Seasoning (or other seasoning of your choice)

Salt & Pepper to taste

1/2 Stick Butter, cut into slices

Chicken Broth

Slow Cooker

I apologize, I don't have exact measurements on this, but in this case I don't really think exact measurements are all that important.  It will turn out good no matter what.  I didn't measure anything and it was delicious.

Start with your pork tenderloin, slicing it (but not all the way through) making grooves to put apple slices inside.

Slice all your apples into fairly thin slices. (You don't have to peel them unless you just really don't like the skins.)

Take the apple slices and dump some in the bottom of the crock pot.  Drizzle these with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Stuff the grooves of your pork tenderloin with apple slices and place that on top of the 1st layer of apples in the crock pot.  Drizzle this with  more honey and more cinnamon.

Top your tenderloin with whatever apple slices you have left, your butter (cut into pats) on top of that, drizzle more honey and sprinkle more cinnamon on top.

Sprinkle with a little poultry seasoning and salt & pepper to taste.

Pour a little chicken broth on top of everything.  (I just put a little... just enough to keep it moist.)

(NOTE: I thought I had waaay too much cinnamon because at one point it came out much faster than I was expecting and dumped a huge pile of it into my crock pot.  It tasted wonderful anyway.  Not too cinnamon-y at all.)

Cook on low all day or on high for 3-4 hours.

The result is tender, sweet & savory deliciousness that will literally melt in your mouth!

It was a big hit with the hubs.  (That's his 'big hit' face)

This is an awesome dish for fall.  I love comfort food this time of year and the slow cooker is my best friend!  It's so nice to come home to the smell of something delicious and ready to eat the minute you walk through the door!

Enjoy!  I know I sure did!
