For the record, I am not a huge pork fan. I do have a couple of pork crock pot recipes though that we really like, so I thought I would give this one a try.
3-5 lb. pork (may use smoked pork shoulder)
1 large onion, sliced
2 apples, peel & cut up in pieces
2 Tablespoons chutney or 1 cup dried fruit (mixed)
1 cup apple cider or apple juice
1/2 cup water
1 or 2 garlic cloves
1 bay leaf
salt & pepper to taste
Cook all ingredients together in crock pot 4 or 5 hours on high temperature.
Remove bay leaf. Slice meat and serve.
We had this with a salad, corn on the cob and a apple and banana fruit salad.
Did I change anything? I used a chutney called Farmhouse Chutney from Stonewall Kitchen instead of the dried fruit. This worked out nicely because we used the leftover chutney as a condiment and it was great. Also, the recipe called for pork shoulder which I used but it was VERY fatty. I don’t know if that’s normal, but I think next time I would choose a much leaner cut.
What did the family think? My husband, me and our oldest liked it with the chutney. Our youngest got out old faithful…the ketchup. 🙂
