    Starflower's Note:

    This is an old recipe that I got from my mother, she never made it when I was younger because she doesn't like sweet potatoes. I have made this recipe now quite a few times and it always turns out moist and delicious. The mustard is optional, and I leave that out as my family doesn't like mustard, although I think it still tastes good with it. The sauce at the end is also optional, I have eaten it before without the sauce and it is still wonderful. The sauce adds a little extra touch though, but use it sparingly, or it will really overpower the great taste of the pork.

      Oh this is so good! I made it last Autumn and came searching for it again because I just bought a huge pork loin on sale. I cannot wait to make it again! When I told everyone what was in it last time, I got "the look" from most of them. DO NOT let the ingredients fool you, this is DELICIOUS! The apple adds to the pork flavor and the Dijon gives it that extra little punch that it needs. It's definitely a new comfort food for me. The only thing that I switched was that I used apple cider instead of apple juice to give it some more flavor. I also put the roast on the bottom of the crock pot with the vegetables and fruit on top so they didn't overcook and get mushy.

      Tried this today in the crockpot, and I just polled the family: thumbs up from everyone! I have always loved the combination of pork,onions,and apples, but to throw sweet potatoes in, too? Perfect! I agree with TylersMomTheChef that the dijon mustard gave a great kick... thanks for sharing, Starflower!
