(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking, Day 10 – Crock Pot Pork Loin with Apple Butter)

This crock pot pork loin with apple butter, apples, and onions is based on one for skillet pork chops from the The Looneyspoons Collection: Good Food, Good Health, Good Fun!

I thought the recipe looked delicious, but decided to try to adapt it for the slow cooker.

It worked! I love when that happens :-)

We really loved this crock pot pork loin with apple butter. It’s a recipe I definitely plan on making again.

Apple butter is like applesauce, only sweeter and spicier. Look for it with the jams and jellies at your grocery store.

Enjoy!

    Hi Martha, I just found your website and am already in love! I just joined WW on Friday and am collecting as many recipes as I can. I noticed on your crock pot recipes you always spray the crock pot first, have you ever tried using slow cooker liners? I love them! They make for a very easy clean up (provided it doesn’t tear, which sometimes it does). I am excited to try this and many other recipes I have found on your site. Thank you for providing the nutritional information!! :)

      Hi Amy!

      Thanks so much for your kind thoughtful comment! I haven’t tried slow cooker liners but they are on my list of must try soon items. I think this would make life in the kitchen even easier. Thanks for the reminder :-)

    This caught my eye and I’m making it today (even though it is hot and not fall -ha ha)…the time for cooking has thrown me off a bit -5 hrs on low is enough? :) Just want to make sure…thanks for sharing this

      Hi Debbie,

      The cooking time is a difficult one to answer since cooking temps can vary a lot from slow cooker to slow cooker. Slow cookers manufactured in the last 10 years or so cook a lot hotter than the old ones from back in the 1970s/1980s. The size of the slow cooker makes a difference too. Ideally a slow cooker should be at least half full and no more than 2/3 full for optimal cooking. If it is less full your food will cook faster. More full and it will take longer. Hope this helps.
