Crockpot Pork Roast with Apple Gravy

What's not to love about a crockpot recipe that's easy and tasty and kid-friendly, too? This pork roast fills the bill nicely. No pesky little vegetables to scare off junior. The gravy comes from the apple juice the pork simmers in.
Next time I'm going to add a bit of salt, and make sure to serve this with mashed potatoes, or maybe baked-- something to sop up that delicious gravy.

3/4 c. apple juice
2 T. sugar
2 T. soy sauce
1 T. vinegar
1 t. ground ginger
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. pepper
3-lb pork loin roast (cut in half if you need to, to fit in your crockpot)
2 1/2 T. cornstarch
3 T. cold water
(salt added, as needed)

Spray your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray (or grease with butter). Add apple juice, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic powder, and pepper. Put roast in crockpot, and cook on low for 7-8 hours. When done, put in oven to keep warm.

In saucepan, whisk together cornstarch and water until smooth. Add in juices from roast. Bring to boil. Cook and stir for two minutes. Add salt to taste.
Serve over mashed taters.

Gotta love the crockpot!

Looks good though I'd add some veggies. My kiddos are quite fond of their veggies. Not too long ago they asked for me to make them peas. I hate peas. They're weird like that.

Thanks for sharing.
