Ingredients

    2.5 pound boneless pork tenderloin
    1 cup low sodium, fat free chicken broth
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 tbsp Herbes de Provence
    1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped (about 4 ounces/1 cup)
    2 Granny Smith Apples, skins on, sliced in eighths
    3/4 cup dried, sweetened cranberries
    1 tsp salt (divided)
    2 tsp black pepper (divided)
    3 oz baby carrots (10-12 carrots)

Tips

Don't open the slow cooker until at least 4 hours. Depending on the cooker, your roast will be done between 4 and 6 hours. The pork should shred easily with a fork.


Directions

Step 1: Season the pork roast with salt and pepper and brown in the olive oil over medium high heat. (5 minutes per side)
Step 2: While the roast is browning, combine the apples, cranberries (or craisins), onion, carrots and salt and pepper in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Step 3: Once the roast is browned, place it in a large slow cooker so that the roast is touching the bottom of the cooker; drizzle with chicken broth. Sprinkle in Herbes de Provence season over the complete mixture.
Step 4: Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low.
Step 5: Once done, spoon the vegetable/fruit mixture over cooked rice (not included in the nutritional values) and serve the sliced pork on the side.
