  1. George, this is going to be our Christmas dinner! One question: Why do you place the roast fat side down in the crockpot? I always thought it was supposed to be fat side up, so it continuously bastes itself?

  2. I have this in my crock pot right now! I was reading about the apples, I used 3 Granny’s in mine, but if I want to add more apples towards the end of the cooking time, can I use Mac’s? I am out of Granny’s!

  3. Is it possible to use Pork Sirloin in this recipe? I have read that sirloin doesn’t work well in the crock pot because it easily dries out but other places in the interwebs say that Pork Loin and Pork Sirloin are interchangeable in recipes.
    I have a pork sirloin from US Wellness Meats in my freezer to cook this weekend and this recipe looks fantastic.

  4. This had so much flavor, it was a hit in my family. I love that it’s healthy and that my kids loved it! Thank you so much for these delish recipes!

  5. Made this today, and it was EXCELLENT! I did as suggested and added two extra apples about two hours before it was done cooking, and I think four apples ended up being just the right amount. The only thing I might do differently next time would be to wait to add the extra apples until only 30 minutes before it’s done, so they stay intact. I also might add an extra sweet potato next time. SO GOOD!!!

    Thank you for the delicious recipe!

  6. Made this the other night. By far the most delicious crockpot pork I’ve ever had! Didn’t last long. Thanks so much. Just bought a pair of your socks too. :)

  7. Had this for dinner tonight. The entire family enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing. I wish the apples didn’t cook away. Has anyone tried adding them a little later into the cooking process? I might try that next time.

  8. We made this tonight and it had waaaay too much vinegar. Before serving we added some brown sugar to try to cut the vinegar taste. Next time I would use about 1/4 cup vinegar, 1/4 cup wine, 1/4 cup apple juice, and 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth. Anything to cut the vinegar flavor. But note: I WILL try it again!

  9. I just made this. Only change is I didn’t have bay leaves and I added some leftover homemade chicken broth. Can’t wait to taste it! Thanks!!! :) Han

  10. Just made this recipe with one change. Due to my poor planning, I didn’t have all day to wait for the crockoot….this recipe was easily changed to a pressure cooker one and came out awesome! Thanks George for all these great recipes, it makes paleo for a newbie so simple

  11. Made this for dinner the other night. Big hit! Easy to prepare. Came out very moist and even my kids loved it. I highly recommend it. Thanks for the recipe. : )
