Apple Pork Roast

This is our new favorite recipe!  The first time Brandy made this, she was absent during dinner and almost didn’t get any when she got home.  It’s really simple to throw together and is a perfect slow cooker meal.



1 Boston butt pork shoulder roast 2-3lbs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons coconut oil (or olive oil)
1 tablespoon butter
1 large onion
2 tsp fresh ginger – diced
1 ½ cups apple cider
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
fresh sage to taste (or dried if you don’t have fresh)
1 ½-2 cups chopped apples


  1. Rub salt and pepper over pork roast. Heat coconut oil in large skilled. Brown pork roast over high heat.
