This is great to serve for company. Try it with some garlic mashed potatoes: Boil the potatoes with salt, but be sure to leave the peelings on! Mash them, then stir in grated cheese, sour cream and garlic salt…. Yummy!
7 lbs boneless pork loin roast
1/3 c. apple juice
2 T. wet minced garlic (in a jar)
Salt & pepper
2 tsp. Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
1 tsp. thyme
2/3 c. brown sugar
3 diced apples
3 T. Dijon mustard
2 cans whole cranberry sauce
Place first first six ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for about 9 hours. About halfway through, remove half of the liquid and discard. Combine the brown sugar, diced apples, mustard, and cranberry sauce in a bowl, then add to the crockpot, stirring it into the liquid. Finish cooking until meat is tender, but not quite falling apart. Keep on warm until ready to serve. Use an electric knife to slice. Then arrange on a serving platter and spoon the sauce over the meat.
