  • 3 pound pork loin roast
  • 1 apple any variety--I used a Gala, sliced
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 12 ounces hard apple cider or regular apple cider
  • 1/4 cup Dijion mustard
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onioin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme


  • Cut 6-8 3 inch slits in pork roast. In each slit, place an apple slice. Combine spices and rub all over pork.
  • Place pork in slow cooker. Around pork roast, lie the remaining apple slices and onions.
  • Mix together the mustard and cider and pour into slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high 4-6 hours.
  • To serve: remove pork from slow cooker. Strain out onions and apple from broth and shred or slice pork and serve with strained braising liquid.


  • You can easily make this Apple and Mustard Pork Loin in the Pressure Cooker/Instant Pot. Place all ingredients in Instant Pot and set to sealed and cook on high pressure for 50 minutes (70 is your pork is frozen–I know I have made it from frozen before!)
