We all know that pork pairs really well with fruit - especially apples. The inspiration for this recipe came from Pinterest. I took two recipes and melded them together – and added a few twists of my own. This was super easy to make and the flavor of the warm spice with the apples and pork was delectable.
2 small Pork Picnic Roasts
2 Granny Smith Apples, sliced into thin wedges (See pictures below the recipe)
1 White Onion, sliced lengthwise (See pictures below the recipe) Separate the two halves of onion because you’ll need half the onion for under the pork and half the onion for the top.
6 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
½ Tsp. Black Pepper
3 Tbls. Dry white wine
Combine the salt, cinnamon & pepper in a small dish. Score the Pork Roasts. Sprinkle some of the spice mixture over the pork and rub into it – including into the scored pieces. Slice one Granny Smith Apple. Place one slice of apple into each of the cuts in the pork.
Place the left-over apple slices and half the onion in the bottom of the crock pot. Add the garlic and the remaining spice mixture. Toss together. Add the dry white wine. Place the two pork roasts on top of the apple/onion mixture.
Slice the remaining Granny Smith Apple. Arrange over the pork. Arrange the remaining half onion over the apples. Sprinkle a little additional salt, pepper and cinnamon over the apples and onions. Put the lid on the crockpot.
Cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce cooking temperature to low and continue cooking for an additional 5 – 6 hours until the pork is falling apart.
