Slow Cooker Apple Rosemary Pork Loin

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 hours
  • Total Time: 8 hours 10 mins
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings


Tender, sweet and savory pork with just 10 minutes prep time. Let your slow cooker do the work!


  • 1 (3 pound) pork loin
  • 2 large granny smith apples, cored and sliced about 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary


  1. Spray your slow cooker insert with cooking spray or grease well.
  2. Place pork loin fat side up on a cutting board. Slice pork loin into slits (about 1 inch apart) deep enough for apple slices. Place 2 apple slices into each slit (skin side up). Place remaining apple slices evenly into bottom of slow cooker.
  3. Pour chicken broth over pork loin. Sprinkle desired amount of salt and pepper over pork loin.
  4. Spread onion slices around pork loin. Sprinkle cinnamon and rosemary over all ingredients.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.


The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork chops, roasts, and tenderloin to an internal temperature between 145° F. (medium rare) and 160° F. (medium), followed by a 3 minute rest. Since large cuts increase approximately 10° F. while resting, remove them from the heat at 150° F. followed by a 10 minute rest.
