Apple Cider Slow Cooked Pork

This has become a staple in our house. After trying various different methods for making some slow cooker pork this one has come out on top in our house. It all began with not having enough time to make Paleo approved dinners in our house so I began trying to make more and more meals in our slow cooker. This recipe is one of the main reasons I started eating more pork. It is full of wonderful flavors and pairs with so many different things which makes it a super easy Paleo dinner options. Your house will be filled with amazing smells and if you make enough of this, you will have leftovers that can be transformed into tacos, stir fry’s and a number of other options. When I first made this version of pulled pork I made so much of it that we decided to invite my father-in-law over to help us get through some of it. Now normally he does not go up for very many second helpings but after he had a bite of this pork he asked for 2 re-fills and a tupper ware for lunch!. i was more than happy to oblige and since then I have made this dish several more times in order to perfect it. I usually pair it with some of my homemade Apple Cider Pickled Onions, the flavors combine into an amazing meal!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Pork Tenderloins
  • 1/2 White Onion (sliced)
  • 6 Garlic Cloves (halved)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth (No MSG)
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 Tsp Seasoning Salt
  • 3 Tsp Ground Pepper
  • 3 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Tsp Paprika

How To:

*If you are putting this pork in before work I recommend combining all the spices the night before in a bowl and putting your onions and garlic into the bottom of the slow cooker before bed, that way you can simply put in the pork, season it and top it off with the broth and vinegar.

  1. Place your onions, garlic and oil into the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. Rinse your pork loins and place them into the slow cooker.
  3. Combine your seasonings together in a bowl then generously coat the pork with the mixtures. Try to cover the sides as best as possible.
  4. Mix your broth with the vinegar then gently pork it around the pork being careful not to wash away the spices.
  5. Close your slow cooker and set it for 8 hours on low.

Finally, come home from work or a day of running around doing errands and enjoy your pork with whatever sides you wish πŸ™‚ You also won’t need to light and scented candles because your house will smell amazing!
