  1. Combine 1/4 of the onion, 1/2 of the apple, and the garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Transfer to slow cooker along with the apple cider and water.
  2. Combine the salt, pepper, ginger and flour in a shallow container. Gently press the roast onto the flour mixture to coat all sides. Brush off any excess flour. Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet. Brown the pork in the hot oil, turning until golden on all sides. Place the browned roast in the slow cooker and scatter the celery and the remaining onion and apple on top. Cook on low for 4 hours, then add carrots. Cook for an additional 3 hours.
  3. Remove the cooked roast to a heated platter, arrange carrots around roast and serve with the strained juices from the slow cooker.

This recipe was okay. We pretty much followed the directions but we don't have a food processor. I don't know if that really made much of a difference. We felt there was a lot of liquid and w...

Wanted to try something different with shoulder roast. After reading reviews, I decided to use 2 packets of apple cider mix rather than one and reduced overall water. I also added ground cloves ...

I was really excited to try this recipe. I used the advice to reduce the amount of cider. However, I thought that although the roast was very tender it lacked taste. Next time I would reduce wat...

I didn't use the food processor or brown the meat and it turned out really good. 5 and 1/2 hours was plenty of time and the meat was quite tender.

This roast is tender and juicy. My husband and son are both picky about food cooked in the slow cooker, but they liked this. I reduced the water to about 1/2 cup. I put it in the slow cooker ...

The meat was flaking off appetizingly when I opened the cooker after 7 or so hours and that was about it unfortunately. The meat was completely flavorless, the aroma only semi-tantilizing. I h...
