"This is easy, and slow cooked. Very tender and great flavor. Apples, nutmeg, rosemary, onions, apple cider, white wine and slow roasted. A great slow cooked easy dish. Try a salad with blue cheese dressing and some fresh rosemary beer bread and you have the perfect fall Sunday Football Meal!! I make this all the times for my pool gang. I play pool 1-2 times per week with 5 guys (the girlfriends too) and I usually cook. This is one of the meals for our Sunday night games. It cooks all day while you do other things. You don't lift a finger other than the last hour when I make my beer bread (1 pan wonder) and make a salad). Please give it a try!"

"I wanted to like this but I should have known better. Adding the vegetables at the same time as the meat is a HUGE mistake. By the time I served dinner, the apples had turned to applesauce, and the sweet potatoes had turned to mashed potatoes. The veggies were one big goopy mess. The presentation was gross, and resembled pureed meals served at nursing homes to toothless senior citizens. The meat had a great flavor. The tart apples actually infused excellent flavor to the pork. Next time, I will wait and add the veggies 3 hours before serving."
"I thought this was just ok. I doubt I would make it again. My apples and pears seemed to lose all of their flavor and texture after cooking so long and roast seemed a bit dry even though it was soaking in liquid. Not bad and the kids actually ate it. Just not quite what I had in mind. Sauce was nice over brown rice."
"This was so yummy! The pork is extremely tender and we loved the fruitiness of all the flavours. The pear was also wonderful addition. We couldn't find apple cider, I think because it's July... So we used 100% freshly pressed apple juice and this seemed to work out perfectly fine for us. Some crusty bread as suggested would be delicious with this as well I think. Thanks for posting!!"
"This was a huge hit. The whole house smelled delicious. We liked the sweet potatoes best! I served it with rice pilaf, but I think just a salad and a crusty bread would be great too. Thanks!"
"wonderful recipe Sarasota!! I made this for dinner this evening and used a pork tenderloin (YUM!) I also added parsnips to the crockpot..what a wonderful dish this is..thanks much for sharing!"
