Crock Pot Challenge Meal #2: Pork Roast with Apples & Sweet Potatoes

With the success of night #1 behind me, I put a lot of pressure on myself to have another great dinner.  Night #2 on the menu was a Pork Roast with Apples & Sweet Potatoes from the blog Amy's Cooking Adventures.  Stephen and I both love a good pork roast so anticipation was high.  Click on the link to the other blog for the full recipe.

The ingredient list was pretty short for this recipe and nothing was too weird, always nice when trying new recipes.  The above picture is from Amy's blog.  My meal did NOT turn out looking like this.  My pork was much darker and the sweet potatoes look like they were much soggier.  While my meal didn't look like the original picture, but it was delicious!  On the Stephen Scale this meal qualifies as a Keeper and good enough to serve to our friends.  The apple and sweet potato flavors mixed together were delicious.  We used apple cider instead of apple juice and I love what it did to the flavor.  I guess that could have made our meat a little bit darker, too.

I do think that next time I make the meal we'll cook it for a shorter amount of time.  The recipe calls for 6-8 hours on low.  I think we hit close to 10 because of work and that was too long.  Next time we'll stick to the recipe a little closer.  We got about 4 servings from the meal so we'll have dinner tomorrow night!

Tomorrow I'm not making a dinner, I'm making a snack!
