Step by Step
Defrost in the refrigerator. Add contents to the slow cooker. Add a splash of warm water to the emptied bag, then seal, shake and pour into the crock to gather up all the extra spices.
Slow Cooker: Cook on low for approximately 8 hours for the most tender pork. Low & Slow is best for this recipe.
Instant Pot:Set pressure release valve to “sealing”. Add just the roast, along with any liquid from the bag and 1/4 cup water. Set to Manual, 55 minutes. Once timer is complete, allow natural release for approx 5 min, then carefully turn to “venting” for manual release.
Add the remaining apples & onions, re-seal the pot and cook on manual for an additional 8 minutes.
Prior to serving, remove any noticeable fat from the roast, then break the meat into large chunks to serve
