Cider-Braised Pork Roast and Apples

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Trim fat from meat. In a small bowl, stir together salt, thyme, sage, and pepper. Sprinkle spice mixture over meat; rub in with your fingers. In a large skillet, brown meat on all sides in hot oil over medium heat.
  2. In a 6- or 7-quart slow cooker, place apples, shallots, and garlic; sprinkle with tapioca. Place meat on top of apple mixture. Pour broth and apple cider over meat.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
  4. Reserve and store* 1 pound of the meat. Use for Pork and Berry Salad (see recipe below). Slice remaining pork; serve with apples and hot cooked rice. Spoon some of the cooking liquid over all. Makes 6 servings.
