Crockpot apple and apricot stuffed pork loin

 
It's day 7 of whole30, I've completed one full week!!! Can't wait to see what next week brings. Today I had coffee with coconut milk,eggs and bacon for breakfast, cantaloupe for a mid morning snack, a sweet potato topped with grilled onions and chicken for lunch, some grapes , an apple, and a handful of trail mix for a snack. I kind of put a few pork loin recipes together to make this one, so I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. To be honest with you, as I checked on it throughout the afternoon in the crock pot I thought it wasn't going to turn out like I wanted it to. But, it was actually very good. It fell right apart and the apple and date stuffing gave it a delicious sweetness. You will need 1 tblsp ghee or olive oil 1 3-4 pond pork loin 1 apple 10 chopped apricots 1 onion 1 clove garlic 3-4 cups chicken broth Salt and pepper All purpose seasoning of your choice Start by chopping the apricots, apple, and onion. Place ghee in sauce pan and melt, then add chopped apricots, apples, onion, and garlic. Let cook until soft, about 5-8 minutes Cut pork loin in half down the side Stuff with apple and apricot mixture, if you have any extra mixture just put it in the bottom of the crock pot. Now place pork on top of that. Season pork well with salt, pepper, and all purpose seasoning. Cover with chicken broth. Make sure the chicken broth covers entire bottom of crockpot. You might need to add more chicken broth later. Make sure it stays moist at the bottom so the meat doesn't dry out. Cook for 6 hours. To go along side the pork I oven roasted some kale. Set oven to 400, take stems off kale, toss in olive oil, salt and pepper, and garlic powder. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Until Krispy. 20120806-192852.jpg
