It’s that time of year again where this Floridian forgets how long New England winters are (seriously, can it be above 50 degrees yet?). So naturally I was in the mood for some stew. I’d had something similar to this last year and remembered it being delicious, but couldn’t quite remember how to make it. So I got creative. And we all got this recipe. It’s a great lazy weekend or day off recipe and makes eight 3/4 cup servings.
2 lbs pork loin roast, boneless
1 sweet onion, sliced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of black pepper
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 green anjou pears, peeled and chopped
2 TB apple cider vinegar
Place 1/2 the sliced onion in bottom of crock pot. Blend salt, cinnamon, and pepper and rub generously on pork (you should use all of it). Place pork in crock pot and cover with remaining onion. Add cider vinegar and cook on high for 4 hours. After 4 hours, add sweet potato and pear. Cook another 3-4 hours or until pork is cooked. You should be able to shred it easily inside. Serve with a side of green veggies for a complete meal.
