Slow cooker pork roast with fruit
Maybe from Prevention magazine? I can't remember ...
1 can (16-oz) whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/2 c quartered dried apricots
1/2 t grated orange peel
1/4 c fresh orange juice
1 large shallot, chopped (1/3 c)
2 t cider vinegar
1 t dry mustard
1 t salt
1 t grated fresh ginger
2 lbs boneless pork loin roast, well trimmed
Mix all ingredients except pork in 4-qt or larger slow cooker. Add pork and spoon some of the cranberry mixture on top.
Cover and cook on low 7-9 hours or until pork is tender.
Remove pork to cutting board. Spoon off any fat from top of cranberry mixture. Slice pork into 6 thick slices and serve topped with sauce.
The pork (sans sauce) is also good the next day shredded and served in corn tortillas with mild cheese (queso fresco if you can find it, or monterey jack) and green salsa.
