Easy Fall Pork

by Michele Pesula Kuegler | October 27th, 2007 | Main Dishes, Recipes

I had planned on going to dinner after a busy afternoon of homework and music lessons for kids. However, as I was getting ready for work that morning I decided that it would be far nicer to come home for a meal. Looking at the options in my freezer and cupboard, I quickly created an easy recipe.

With the chill of fall in the air, using the crockpot was my first choice. I had a package of boneless pork loins that I could defrost in a pinch. Having been to a local farmstand the previous weekend, I had apples and cider. From there I pondered what sort of flavors I would want to add. A sliced yellow onion would balance the sweetness of the cider. Plus, some cinnamon for both flavor and scent.

I was able to assemble my meal in the crockpot in less than 15 minutes, which paid off later. As we arrived home from our afternoon’s activities, the house was filled with wonderful aroma of pork, apples, and cinnamon. Even though I know the crockpot didn’t heat up the kitchen, the house felt very warm and welcoming.

While backpacks and lunchboxes were emptied, I quickly steamed some broccoli. Within minutes of arriving home, we were settled down to a simple yet filling meal. Why would I ever have considered eating out when dinner was this easy?
