A bit negligent with my picture taking these days...

Yet again I've neglected to take a picture for this blog of something new I've made. Sometimes we start eating and I remember and figure I'll take a picture when we have leftovers. Well I forgot then too! I guess you will just have to take my word for it that this recipe is fabulous, easy, and wonderful. Nothing better than a crockpot recipe....but nothing better than a crockpot recipe with very few ingredients!

This pork came out moist, tender, and flavorful. It wasn't dry at all - I was a little skeptical it might be. I left my roast whole and cooked it about 7 hours. I also threw some potatoes and baby carrots in with it and they came out super tasty. A thanks to my friend Pam M. for this recipe!

Apple-Dijon Pork Roast

2 Pound(s) - 3 pound pork loin
1 Can chicken broth
1 Cup apple juice
1/2 Cup(s) Dijon mustard
6 Tablespoon cornstarch
6 Tablespoon cold water
Cut roast in half; place in a 5 quart slow cooker. Combine the broth, apple juice & mustard; pour over roast. Cover & cook on low for 4-4 1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.

Remove roast & keep warm. For gravy, strain cooking juices & skim fat. Pour juices into a small saucepan. Combine cornstarch & water until smooth; gradually stir into juices. Bring to a boil; cook & stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork.
