Pork Loin & Sweet Potatoes in Crockpot

Today we wanted a quick and easy dinner as Grenville and I pork loin crock pot (1)decided to spend most of a beautiful day outdoors on a couple of Sunday strolls. Grenville will be posting photos later.
Dinner had to be something we could prepare before leaving and be ready by 6 p.m. We’ve having friends, Marty & Bob, join us for dinner around that time.
Solution: crock pot Sunday dinner.
Crock Pot Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • 2 to 3 large sweet potatoes, chunked
  • 2-3 carrots, chunked
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 C apple cider (not apple juice)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • salt and pepper to taste or pork seasoning
Rub pork seasonings (or salt, pepper and garlic powder) on meat. Cut sweet potatoes and green peppers in large pieces and place in crock pot. Place pork loin on top. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over all; cook all day on low 8-9 hours or about 4 hours on high. Serve with a salad or green vegetable.

Note: For a thicker sauce, mix some flour with a bit of the juices and make a slurry, then add back into crock pot on high for 10-15 minutes.
Dessert will be freshly baked pumpkin pie. Last night, Grenville made one with pumpkins from our veggie garden. (We discovered a couple of frozen packages in the freezer this week.)
A perfect fall Sunday evening dinner with good friends.
Sorry you can’t all join us. Maybe another time.

This does sound like a good one! I like the idea of the cinnamon and I've been buying big bags of sweet potatoes at the Farmer's Market!

I always like using the crockpot, and this looks very good, and then there's the pumpkin pie for dessert. I'm sorry we couldn't join you too....

YUM!! I wish my pork roast look like that. Sounds good and I bet the fragrance wafted through the house.

Hope your walk was delightful and the company as well.

It sure did turn out looking very good. You made me hungry.

We had nearly the same meal the other evening. Except it was more like stew but then it cooked all day in a crock pot or a slow cooker. Not sure which. It was delicious and I suppose your meal was too. The picture makes it look good.

I made something similar a few weeks ago. I ate it all myself. Eventually.

Susie Swanson said...

Thanks so much for the crockpot recipe.. I have been looking also for some and that sounds delicious...

Sweet Virginia Breeze said...

Thanks so much for this recipe! My mouth is watering just looking at your photo and thinking about how delicious it must be.

wonder why I have not done pork roasts in the crock pot? I use the crock pot way less in retirement, maybe because I have more time to tinker. Looks good.

Hi Everyone, dinner turned out great. We all enjoyed the pork and veggies, plus there were leftovers for another dinner! Ditto on the pumpkin pie too.

Denise, you are very welcome. Hope you enjoy this one.

Grace, those sweet potatoes will go great with any pork dish. Wish we had farmers market nearby to get lots more.

Elaine (Country Girl) you are so right about how nice it is to be outside and come home to dinner already cooked. We had a great day outdoors thanks to the slow cooker!

Mona, it sure was and will be better with leftovers reheated.

Elaine (Artic View) Grenville's pumpkin pie was very good, sorry you missed both too - maybe another time!

Tammy, thanks the day, the dinner and friend's visiting were all wonderful.

Sorry about that, Larry :-(

Abe, this was almost like a stew, but the pork was cut up later. The photos didn't lie, BUT it was better than it looked too.

John, that's why we invited friends to come and helop cause we do like leftovers but only for 1 other meal and we have that now.

Hi Susie and Sweet Virginia Breeze, glad to have posted a slow cooker recipe you might both enjoy. It's really so easy to do.

Daisy said...

Looks tasty. Crockpots are great for dinners like this.

Ginnie said...

Sounds wonderful and I'm going to try it tomorrow!
