We attended a banquet this weekend that featured a pork loin main dish. It was wonderfully juicy with a bit of sweet sauce that was made from various fruits and spices.
It prompted our craving for a good pork recipe in the slow cooker. Here is a recipe reminiscent of the flavors that we enjoyed this weekend.
