It is officially Fall which means cooler temps and the perfect excuse to break out the slow cooker. I LOVE the crockpot/slow cooker. It is SO easy to just throw ingredients together and they all magically turn out delicious. The recipe that I made for today’s link up was inspired by a balsamic that I had purchased from a vendor at Vino & the Beasts when I was there in August. I have literally been dying to use this for something delicious and today’s slow cooker meal link up was the perfect excuse! When I was scoping out all the vendors at the race I came across Tutto D’Oliva. They literally had an entire tableful of different olive oils and balsamic vinegars to try. I had no idea where to begin and wanted to buy so many but when I tried the Cinnamon Pear Balsamic, I knew that it would go perfect with so many Fall dishes. I have made an apple/pork slow cooker dish before but this balsamic really took it to the next level.
The best part of this recipe is that it packs a ton of flavor but involves very little effort or ingredients. I just simple laid the pork at the bottom of the crockpot, seasoned then topped with apples onions, a bit more seasoning and drizzled with the balsamic vinegar. Six-ish hours later, my delicious dinner was ready to eat!
