Slow Cooker Recipe - Apple Cider Pork Roast

This was my first time making this recipe which I found in an old magazine. Making any recipe for the first time dcan be a hit or a miss. It can also be a miss that you know could be a hit with a few changes the next time around. So the recipe I post will be an altered version of what I actually made so that it will turn out perfect next time around.

The flavors were amazing together but some came through a little strong and the cooking time suggested was a little longer then I felt it should have been. My pork turned out a little dry because of it. Still delish but a few tweaks needed for next time which I have put into the following recipe for you guys


1 (2 lb.) boneless Pork Loin Roast

1 1/2  cup apple cider

1/2 cup root beer

3/4  teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

1/2 cup craisins

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper.  In a nonstick skillet, brown pork for about 2 minutes on each side.  Pour apple cider and root beer in  slow cooker.  Place one sprig rosemary in slow cooker; top with meat and remaining rosemary.  Place craisins around the roast.  Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until meat is tender. DO NOT OVER COOK. Remove meat, cut and serve

Super simple but you for sure want to check on the pork to ensure you don't over cook it. There for it's not one of those toss together and forget about slow cooking recipes but it is work the little extra attention

Hope you guys enjoy this one!
