Maple Pork Roast


Copyright © Self Magazine

This is a modified version of a Self Magazine recipe. It turned out amazing. Instead of roasting in an oven I used the slow cooker. The pork tenderloin was super tender and the combination of spices, sweet potatoes and apples was perfect. For around $15, you can get about 6 servings. We added a side of green beans. Also, if you don’t already use slow cooker liners, you need to start. They are awesome.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs pork tenderloin
  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp thyme, ground or chopped
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (I used Publix brand pancake syrup)
  • 2 tsp whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
  • 2 large Fuji apples, cored, cut into 1 inch wedges

Directions

  1. Place slow cooker liner inside slow cooker. Pour in water.
  2. Rinse off pork tenderloin and place inside slow cooker.
  3. Add olive oil, thyme, salt, pepper, syrup, and whole-grain Dijon mustard. Stir.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  5. Add sweet potatoes and apples and let cook for 1 hour. When I added the potatoes and apples I put the slow cooker on high.
  6. Once the potatoes and apples become tender, put the slow cooker on warm until you are ready to serve.
