DIRECTIONS

  • Pour the apple juice into the crock pot.
  • Then layer the sweet potatoes, onions and apples in the crock pot.
  • In a nonstick skillet, brown the pork on all sides over medium-high heat.
  • Place the pork on top of the potato and apple slices.
  • Brush the mustard over the roast and sprinkle the roast with the pepper and sage.
  • Cover and cook on LOW until the roast is done and registers 165°F (73.9°C) on a quick reading meat thermometer, 7 to 9 hours.
  • Transfer the roast to a platter and keep it warm.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer the apple-sweet potato mixture to a bowl and keep it warm.
  • Combine the water, sugar and cornstarch in a measuring cup. Stir the cornstarch mixture into the juices in the crock pot and cook on high, stirring often, until they thicken, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Serve gravy over the roast and apple-potato mixture.
