How to make pork roast with apple jelly glaze in a slow cooker

Print this recipe
There may be no culinary pairing quite as classic as pork and apples. But when you're relying on your slow cooker, apples tend to get quite mushy with long cooking times. So how can you keep that sweet apple flavor, without actually adding apples? Enter apple jelly.
For this dish, while the apple jelly is sweetening and flavoring the pork, ginger ale is slowly working to break down the pork slightly, making it some of the most tender and succulent you've ever tasted. Just a few other flavors, including mustard and garlic, bring it all together and make for a meal you'll be raving about for many more evenings to come.

Pork Roast with Apple Jelly Glaze
6
10 minutes
8 hours
8 hours, 10 minutes
1 4-pound (2 kg) boneless pork loin roast
1/2 355-ml (12 ounce) can Ginger Ale
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) apple jelly
2 tablespoons (30 ml) Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon (15 ml) maple syrup
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Generously salt and pepper the pork loin.
Into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker, combine the Ginger Ale, onion, and garlic. Place the pork roast into the slow cooker.
In a small bowl, combine the apple jelly, Dijon mustard, and maple syrup. Pour this evenly over top of the pork roast in a single layer. Don't worry if some of the jelly mixture runs over the sides of the pork and down into the Ginger Ale mixture. It will only help flavor even more of the pork!
Cover the slow cooker, set to low and cook for 8 hours.

Pro tip: For a bit of caramelized flavor, sear the pork in a very hot pan with olive oil before placing in the slow cooker.
