Pork Loin with Potatoes & Apples

Oooh! Can I tell you how much I am loving my slow cooker?! Not only does it do all the work for me, but cleanup is a breeze and it makes these tougher cuts of meat soooo succulent and, well – I won’t torture you any longer. Today’s dish is a flavorful low sodium pork loin in ONE simple step. Add everything to the pot, place on low and 8 hours later you’ll have a dinner worthy of company. We spooned ours over steamed basmati rice and it was ample enough for a second meal. Recipe courtesy of Kitchen Basics Healthy Cooking with Stock.

Serves 8.

    This is in my slow cooker right now! I can’t wait to try it. Trying to get back on “the wagon” of good Meniere’s friendly eating. It smells wonderful. And honestly – I’d be lost without this site. Thank you for being a champion for those who would otherwise be lost.

    I’m trying this tonight! Thank you so much for this awesome site. It has been a lifesaver for me. I was diagnosed with Meniere’s this summer and I am still adjusting. You can find gluten-free and dairy-free everywhere, but it’s so hard to find sodium-free or even low-sodium.
