WW Recipe of the Day: Crock Pot Fruited Pork Loin
(255 calories | 7 7 7 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I got the idea for this Fruited Pork Loin from my local grocery store. When I stopped in looking for dinner ideas they had pork loin roasts stuffed with dried fruit sitting in the meat counter. So, I grabbed one and cooked it in my slow cooker. It was really tasty.
Stuffing dried fruit into a pork loin is not something I would go to the trouble of doing myself. I'm much too lazy.
Skinny on Fruited Pork Loin Roast
I'd make a simple fruited pork loin roast like this one instead. By topping a pork loin with dried fruit and cooking it in the slow cooker with thinly sliced onions, dried fruit and a little spiced apple juice.
Simple. Delicious. No muss, no fuss.
