I get really tired of figuring out what is for dinner…
Do you ever get into a rut of what you are making for dinner? I know that I do. I end up making many of the same things over and over. One day I was day dreaming about putting different flavours together. The apple, onion, pepper and carrots give this dish a sweetness, along with the ginger and black pepper bite. This has become one of my new favourites!
The combination of apple and veggies along with the freshly grated ginger give this dish distinct and fabulous flavour!
Ginger Apple Pork Roast (Paleo)
2 apples- sliced (I have used empire and gala)
2 onions- sliced
1 red pepper- sliced (optional)
2 inch piece ginger-peeled and grated
4 medium carrots- peeled and sliced
4-5 lb. pork tenderloin
freshly cracked black pepper
To the bottom of your slow cooker, add one of your sliced apples (I leave the skin on), one onion and half red pepper. Cover with half your grated ginger and approximately one teaspoon of freshly cracked black pepper. Place roast on top. Arrange carrots around roast. Top with remaining apple, onion, red pepper, ginger and pepper. Add 1/2 cup water.
Put slow cooker on low for 5-6 hours. Test roast with a meat thermometer and make sure the temperature is at least 160 degrees.
Take roast out of slow cooker, cover with foil and let rest for 15 minutes before cutting.
