WW Recipe of the Day: 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! (affiliate link) by Janet Podleski and Greta Podleski.
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.

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!! 🙂
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
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.
Made this and it was very tasty, husband enjoyed it as well!!
Hi Danielle, So glad you and your husband liked it!
Did this in the pressure cooker, delicious!! Thanks!
Glad you liked it Kelly 🙂
How did you cook it in the pressure cooker. I'd love to adapt it to my Instant pot but wanted to find out what you did. Thanks, shannon
Hi there! I think this question goes for all not your fantastic recipes. If I want to make a bunch of meals before hand and freeze them... can I put the ingredients in a ziplock bag and sick in freezer until I am ready to cooker? Thanks!
Hi Katherine, Yes this technique will work for many of my recipes, particularly most of the ones for the slow cooker. Hope this helps.
Good Morning, I noticed you used a 4 quart cooker. If I use a larger crock pot, should I reduce/add more time? Double the sauce?
Hi Janet, if you use a larger slow cooker, you'll want to keep an eye on it because it will probably require less time to be done. Hope this helps.
Easy and delicious! Consistently good.
