An easy slow cooker pork roast with maple roasted sweet potatoes, apples and spinach. The perfect fall meal!
I probably don’t even need to say anything else about it. Right? I mean pork roast in the slow cooker that literally falls apart when you take it out kind of speaks for itself. And those veggies? So colourful and perfect with the tender pork.
We really loved this meal. In fact, I first made it last fall and loved it. Then I tried it with pork tenderloin, and that was also really fantastic (so get whatever kind of pork roast you prefer). That time I even snapped some quick photos so I could share it with you, because clearly it was a winner. But they were absolutely terrible and I just couldn’t subject you to looking at that. So I made it again, but by that time it was after Christmas and it just seemed a little bit too fall-like to post.
Of course, here it is the last week of November and I’m just now getting around to sharing it! I will admit that if I hadn’t gotten my act together and made it again this month, you probably would have been seeing it after Christmas. Because I certainly was not going to wait another whole year to share it. That would just be mean.
You need this easy, tasty and colourful meal in your life before then.
Plus, since we are heading into December, I can pretty much guarantee that it’ll be mostly (maybe all) sweet stuff around here for the next month. I’m sorry, but that’s just a fact. December is the one time of year that it’s a-ok to bake incessantly and enjoy all the treats. At least in my world!
But for today, we have slow cooker pork roast with maple roasted sweet potatoes, apples and spinach on the side. Perfect for those chilly fall evenings (or winter if you’re in the freezing north like me!) when you want something warm and cozy to eat, that’s also easy to make. This is it.
