Gingered Pork Loin

This is an easy and delicious crockpot recipe. Preparation is minimal and this can sit in a crockpot on low all day which will really let the flavor of the ginger and apples seep into the pork. This dish is excellent with a side of homemade mashed potatoes.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 – 1.5lbs Pork Loin
  • 3 Granny Smith Apples, diced
  • 1/2 – 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • Fresh ginger, sliced/diced, to taste
  • 2 cups white wine (avoid “cooking wine” which is overly salted).
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • Maple Syrup or Brown sugar, to taste. (I recommend around 3 tsp.)
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste.

PREPARATION

In a 1 qt. crock pot, place the apples at the bottom, followed by the carrots and fresh ginger. Place the pork loin on top (cut in half to make fit).

In a measuring cup, measure out 2 cups of white wine and whisk in the ground ginger (if opting to add brown sugar, also whisk into the wine). Pour the wine mixture on the pork loin. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Set the crock pot on high for 1-2 hours, then turn down to low and let simmer for an additional 4-6 hours, or until the pork loin is fork tender (falls apart when separated with a fork). Alternatively, cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Serves 2 – 4. Good served with a side of mashed potatoes.
