Autumn Harvest's Best Pork Roast

Total Time
8hrs 10mins
Prep 10 mins
Cook 8 hrs

Pork, when cooked to perfection, is my favorite meat. I started serving this dish last fall when apples were being harvested and it was a huge hit. I like granny smith but many others will do just fine. Some people like to eat the apples with the pork. I prefer them just to flavor the meat and sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub pork loin with pepper and salt to taste.
  2. Brown sides in frying pan.
  3. Line apples on the bottom of a crockpot.
  4. Lay pork loin on top of apples.
  5. Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over pork loin and apples.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  7. *Note:I use Livingston's Chablis Blanc which is about$4.00 a bottle in the grocery store. However, Beringer's Chenin Blanc or a nice German white wine (like Reisling) would be lovely as well.
  8. **Note:I use my mom's homemade peach jam. If you use plain peach jam be sure to add 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a pinch of ground clove for a wonderful flavor.

Great recipe!I used cortland apples and I added an onion along with the apples to make it a little more savory. The flavor was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

I made this roast exactly as directed by Kim, including adding the recommended cinnamon and ground clove. It was moist, but somehow lacked flavor. I think if I were to prepare this roast again I will increase the brown sugar.

I added some stalks of celery for the pork loin to rest on in addition to the apples. The pork was very tender, moist and I was glad because I was serving to my inlaws.
