Slow Cooker season is here, and we could not be more excited. Granted it is perfectly acceptable to use a slow cooker all year long, I know we do. However, everyone really embraces slow cooker meals once the weather cools. We crave comfort foods, simple warming meals, and less fuss. Thankfully our Slow Cooker Fall Spice Pork Roast With Fennel + Apple is just what you have been looking for. A healthy, comforting, and simple meal all rolled into one. And it’s all prepared and cooked in ONE pot. Amazing right?

We had been relying on a hand me down slow cooker the last few years. Which worked well for us, but it was missing a few bells and whistles. I also didn’t love the traditional non-stick coating, or limited features. It got the job done, but it wasn’t my favorite kitchen appliance.

Thankfully we now turn to the brand new Calphalon Precision Control™ Slow Cooker, Matte Black. This unique appliance comes from the #1 cookware brand in the U.S., and is a game changer for one-pot cooking.

We love this brand, because we know we can count on high-quality durable products. In fact, we still use our stainless steel pot set we bought way back when we first moved in together. We have always been of the mind that investing in dependable products is the only way to go when you a) use them often, and b) need premium performance.

Even more exciting, they have launched an entire new line of products exclusive to Target. As if we needed another reason to love Target, am I right? Make sure you check out the full lineup of Calphalon Precision Control™ products, available at a Target near you.

Now, back to the Calphalon Precision Control™ Slow Cooker, Matte Black. I mentioned this appliance is a game changer, and here’s why. You can sauté, brown, sear, AND slow cook all in the same pot. Plus, get this, the pot is also oven and stovetop safe. Mind blown.

A few other cool features of the Calphalon Precision Control™ Slow Cooker, Matte Black include:

  • Instead of traditional non stick coating, they used a Ceramic cooking surface that is 10x more durable and provides 20% more even heat* (*Compared to standard non stick coating)
  • 2 heat settings and auto keep-warm mode
  • Big capacity with a 5.3-quart insert
  • 4, 6, and 8 hour programmable timer settings

I am a HUGE fan of one-pot cooking. It helps build flavor, and is loads easier during clean up. Plus, there is something so comforting about a hot meal served from the same pot it was cooked in. It reminds me of how our grandparents used to cook, and that association alone gives me the warm and fuzzies.

Speaking of warm and fuzzies, our Slow Cooker Fall Spice Pork Roast With Fennel + Apple is basically a big fall hug. All the flavors you love, including apple, warm spices, spicy fennel, and of course juicy tender pork.

When selecting your pork cut for this dish, we suggest a tenderloin. This cut holds together well, versus falling apart like a fattier portion such as shoulder roast. You certainly can use a different cut if you prefer, or even if you cannot locate a tenderloin. Just bear in mind the end product will be different in look and texture.

This recipe also happens to be incredibly healthy and suitable for multiple diets. Free from gluten, grains, dairy, sugar, and even low carb, you can feel confident serving this dish to the entire family.

There is very little prep involved, as we leave all the heavy lifting to the Calphalon Precision Control™ Slow Cooker, Matte Black. Although it is incredibly simple to prepare, no one else has to know. This dish is great for company, and would be wonderful to serve at a dinner party. Add a harvest salad, baked potatoes, roasted vegetables, or your favorite vegetable side and you have a complete meal.

Aren’t these just the best meals? Those that actually that took you little time and effort, but come out looking like you slaved in the kitchen for hours. Sure you can share this knowledge with your guests, or you can keep them guessing. You be the judge. But either way, you will be the hit of the fall party scene with this easy and flavorful meal.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat or cooking fat of choice
  • 1-1 1/2 pound pork loin roast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 1 small fennel bulb
  • 1 small tart-sweet apple pink lady or similar
  • 1/3 cup chicken bone broth or stock
  • 1/3 cup sugar-free apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon dried
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • Place crock pot insert on stovetop and heat on medium-high. Add 2 tablespoons bacon fat.
  • Season pork liberally with salt and pepper on all sides, and add to the heated pan. Sear pork about 3-5 minutes per side, until browned.
  • While roast is browning, cut onion in half, then slice into thin half moons. Repeat with fennel and apple. If using fresh herbs, remove thyme from stalk and roughly chop sage. In a small bowl whisk together bone broth or stock, apple cider, and Dijon mustard. Set aside.
  • Once the pork is browned, turn off burner and remove pan from the heat. Using pot holders, carefully transfer the pot to the crock pot base. Nestle onions, fennel, and apple around the roast. Sprinkle with herbs and seasonings, then pour stock mixture on top.
  • Cover with the lid and set timer to 4 hours on low heat. If you're in a rush, cook on high for 2 hours. Once done cooking, remove pork to a plate, cover with foil, and let rest.
  • Meanwhile, transfer pot back to the stovetop. On medium heat, bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to maintain a simmer. Let cook about 10 minutes, or until sauce reduces to your preferred consistency.
  • Slice roast into pieces and serve immediately with pan sauce on the side.

Notes

  • You can sub pork shoulder for tenderloin, however the appearance and texture will differ.
  • Our favorite sides with this dish include roasted Brussel sprouts, winter squash, or a harvest salad.
