Cut slits on the top of the pork loin, I cut about an inch down. Plug in apple slices into the slits. Set aside.
Add the onions and remaining apple slices down in the slow cooker. Lay over the slices of butter.
Add the pork loin.
Sprinkle the pork with the salt, pepper and cinnamon. Add the thyme.
Drizzle over the honey.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
When the cooking time is done. Remove the pork onto a platter and let rest for at least 5 minutes. Slice and serve.
What can I do with the leftovers?You can toss the leftover pork in barbecue sauce and make sandwiches or use the pork to make burritos or green sauce enchiladas.My pork is much smaller, how long should I cook?If you use a smaller pork cut, such as pork tenderloin (about 2 pounds), you will only need to cook on low for five hours.How to store:Place the cooled pork into the fridge in a ziplock bag or airtight container. It freezes well; you can freeze it for up to three months.
