If you’re looking for something different to do with your roast potatoes for the whole family on a Sunday then a stuffed pork loin is a great alternative to traditional roasts.

Cooking the boneless pork loin in the slow cooker saves so much time and lets you enjoy the day rather than slaving over the stove plus, this apricot pork tenderloin makes a great alternative to a more traditional apricot glazed pork loin. This is a wonderful pork loin roast and one one the whole family will love for dinner.

Slow Cooked Apricot & Pistachio Stuffed Pork Loin Recipe

You can fit a really good sized loin of pork in most crock pots or you could cut the loin in two and lay them side by side in the slow cooker dish. Amongst our other slow cooker recipes we have a prune stuffed pork loin recipe that you might also like to try.

How does this differ to oven cooking?

Unlike oven cooking, this crock pot pork dish uses dried apricots rather than apricot preserves and we find that the slow cooker apricot and pistachio pork loin stays really moist during cooking, giving the perfect texture when served.
