Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Submitted by: LGK1000

Introduction

I copied this recipe from about.com, the only difference is that I halved the amounts called for and when I cooked my roast I left out the cup of chicken broth and 1/4 tsp. pepper (by accident), so I left those out of the ingredients too. I found the meat and vegetables to be tender and flavorful without the two missing ingredients, but feel free to add them if you would like. This dish is actually a little higher in fat than I had anticipated, but it is not too bad.

    * 1.5 lb. boneless pork sirloin roast
    * 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
    * 3 - 4 wedges of acorn squash
    * 1sweet potato, peeled
    * 1/4 cup apple butter

While that's cooking, cut the acorn squash into wedges and remove seeds. Do not peel. Peel sweet potatoes and cut into chunks. Place squash and sweet potatoes in 3-4 quart slow cooker. Top with browned pork roast.

In a small bowl, mix together apple butter, horseradish, cornstarch, allspice, (pepper, chicken broth,) and thyme. Pour into slow cooker.
