Apple Cider Braised Pork Roast

Cracker Barrel Copycat Recipe

Serves 4-6

1 (5 lb) boneless pork shoulder roast, trimmed
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, sliced
3 ribs celery, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 cup apple cider
6 ounces dried apples
1 tablespoon ground sage

Season the pork with salt and pepper. In a large, heavy skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the pork roast and cook, turning, until browned, about 15 minutes.

Grease the inside of a large slow cooker. Add the onion and celery. Arrange the pork on top and pour in the cider. Scatter the apples over the pork and sprinkle the sage on top. Cover and cook on low heat until tender, about 5 hours.

Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let cool for a few minutes as you skim the fat from the gravy. Slice pork into thick pieces and serve with the gravy, fruit and vegetables.
