Slow Cooker Apple Pork Roast

We tried this recipe before moving it to Favorites. When the recipe transports from the DaVita website to Favorites, it loses the pork ingredient. Also, the recipe calls for 3/4 tsp. of ground cinnamon, but only instructs use for 1/2 tsp. Please let me know if I have missed something and, if not, when the recipe is corrected :)Dietitian comment: Thanks for [INVALID]ing us to the missing ingredient on this recipe. I have reached out to our development team for the correction in Diet Helper. The extra 1/4 tsp cinnamon goes on top so the correct amount is 1/2 tsp cinnamon on top of the roast and applesauce. I have made that correction.

How would I make this in the oven. I don't have a slow cooker. It sounds great and would like to try. Gave it a 4 because it sounds good. Dietitian comment: Bake it in a roasting pan at 375F for 2 hours or to internal temperature of 145F.

Just a note about this recipe shown above. It is on the bland side of the flavor spectrum. Very basic taste if you follow the recipe above. As a side note, it could use some spices that compliment apple and onion. As a suggestion, try some of the spices that are recommended for the diet that you need to follow. I used Fennel and Anise Seed, which did help bring the flavor of the apple and onion up a notch or two. It helped and they are both allowed on the Kidney Dialysis diet.

Neither my husband nor I liked this. Will stick to my cranberry/applesauce pork roast recipe.

This website is great! My Mom was told yesterday that she has to switch to a low potassium diet. She was very depressed as she is dealing with many resulting side affects from CHF. Thank you for this site.
