Pork and apples Taken from http://community.livejournal.com/what_a_crock But we didn't bookmark the exact page. 1 pork tenderloin (2.25 lbs) 6 cortland apples 1/2 cup orange juice powdered ginger brown sugar Core and section the apples, layer them in the crock pot. Add orange juice. Place (still frozen) pork loin on apples. Sprinkle with 2 generous pinches of powdered ginger and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Cook on high for 6 hrs. Serve over whole wheat bread. The OP cooked it on low for 8 hours, but hers was thawed, ours was frozen so we went with the higher setting. She served it over white rice, we were too busy, so we used whole wheat bread instead. It was good, and we ate all of it (mainly because we were hungry after running errands all day!), but I think it can still be tweaked. Next time, we're going to use apple cider instead of oj, slice up an onion to add to the apples and go a little heavier handed on both the ginger and the brown sugar. Another day, another variation Crock pot Tuesday. Tuesdays are the days when my wife and I have the least amount of overlap in our schedule. We usually make dinner in the crockpot. Today was a layer of apple slices, a layer of onions, a layer of porkchops, half a pint of BBQ sauce, another layer of onions, another half-pint of BBQ, and a cup of apple cider. Work was the usual. Ran errands. When we got home, the meat was delicious and would fall off the bone without needing a knife. Wonderful.
