Crockpot Roasted Pork Loin with Apple and Veggies

I like coming home to a home-cooked dinner. I love my crockpot so much. Not much effort and the food cooks unattended. This Pork Loin dinner is delicious and filling. I am sure your family will enjoy this.

2 pound lean Pork Loin
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder
1 tsp Liquid Smoke
8 small Red Potatoes, cut in half (or you can use any potato you want)
8 oz baby carrots
1 apple, cored and sliced

Mix the Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Paprika and Cinnamon Powder in a small bowl. Add the Liquid Smoke and mix well into a paste. Rub well onto the Pork Loin.

Spray a pan with nonstick spray and brown the pork loin on all sides. Spray the Crock with nonstick spray and lay the pork loin in it. Pour a little more Liquid Smoke over it if you wish. Line sides of the crockpot with the potatoes and carrots, and place the apple slices on top of the pork loin.

Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8 hours.

Freshly cooked in the crockpot

7 points a serving. I love that you get a good, filling, healthy meal and not work too hard to make it! The crockpot rules, I swear.

Tip: You can make gravy with the liquid on the bottom of the crockpot by straining it into a pot, and adding 3 tbsps of flour, mixing thoroughly and making sure there are no lumps. Use a wire whisk, on medium heat. Add some pepper and a little salt, if you wish. Pour over your food. Yummy.
