It’s no secret that I love using my slow cooker. It’s the key to getting a delicious dinner on the table with a minimum of fuss. This shredded apple pork recipe is the perfect way to marry the flavors of fall with this handy appliance. Using a bit of apple butter, some apple cider vinegar, and fresh apples will really bring your apple flavor home when combined with your pork loin chops. I like to think of this as an autumn version of pulled pork, minus the bbq flavor, but still with that touch of sweetness kids love. I serve it with buttered egg noodles or mashed potatoes and a green veggie for a balanced plate.
Shredded Apple Pork
- 1 cup Musselman’s Apple Butter

- 6 boneless pork loin chops
In small bowl, whisk together apple butter, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper.
Place chopped apples and onions in slow cooker. Add pork chops and pour apple butter mixture over top.
Cook on low for five to six hours covered. Shred pork with two forks in cooker, and let meat cook on low in sauce for an additional 20 minutes uncovered.
