1 rolled boneless pork loin roast (1 3/4 to 2 lb)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 large dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, sliced, separated into rings
1 1/2teaspoons dried thyme leaves
1quart (4 cups) apple juice
Sprinkle pork roast with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper; place in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Place sweet potatoes around and on top of roast. Top with onion; sprinkle with thyme and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Pour apple juice over onion.
Cover; cook on Low setting 6 to 8 hours.
With slotted spoon, remove vegetables from slow cooker; place on serving platter. Remove roast from slow cooker; place on cutting board. Cut roast into slices; place on platter. If desired, drizzle some of cooking liquid from slow cooker over vegetables and roast.
When it was done, I strained about 3 cups of the liquid and set it aside. I made a roux and added the liquid and made a nice gravy and seasoned it with a bit of salt and pepper to taste. This one is certainly a keeper!!
