My Personal Pinterest Test Kitchen Says....
Thumbs up on this one. Here in Texas we wait a long time for Fall. It stays around for about 5 minutes and BINGO! It's winter, follwed by our 7 minute spring that leads into our six month summer. We have to pack all those hoarded harvest recipes into the month of November.
I just happened to have a nice pork loin and no idea what to do with it. This recipe kept popping up on Pinterest. I've had some success and a lot of fails with Pinterest recipes, but I can vouch for this one. It's crock pot all the way. You don't even have to sear the pork.
A couple of hints: The secret to succulent pork is not overcooking it. Mine didn't take as long as the recipe called for. Keep an eye on it during that last hour of cooking on high.
Substitution: You probably have everything you need in your pantry. I happened to be out of sage, so I used poultry seasoning, which has a lot of sage in it.
Mine didn't have that perfectly thick glaze as in the picture, but it was plenty flavorful. I suspect that if you want the glaze in the picture you might need to put it in the broiler for a few minutes, but it's not really necessary.
What to go with it? Try this recipe from Whole Foods: Kale and Apple Saute. I used frozen kale and it was fine. Fresh is always better, I know, but I can't keep fresh greens because I never know when I'll have time to cook and they usually end up spoiling.
I didn't know quite what to think of it at first, but found that as the flavors settled and mingled, it was a perfect companiion to the pork. I suggest making it in the morning as you're preparing the pork, or even the day before.
