  • Summary

    Note: This pork roast freezes very well if you want to get it prepped when you buy it and then cook it in the future after defrosting. It does need to marinate overnight before cooking so plan to get it ready in the slow cooker the night before cooking so it can marinate all night.

    Ingredients

    • 3 pound (1.4 kg) pork shoulder blade or picnic roast (or 2 pork tenderloins)
    • For the marinade:
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoons dried rosemary
    • 1 teaspoons dried thyme
    • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
    • For the veggies:
    • 2 apples, chopped (about 2 cups)
    • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped (about 2 cups)
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
    • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
