Pork Loin with Fruit Stuffing Crockpot Recipe

Pork Loin with Fruit Stuffing Crockpot Recipe

Ingredients needed:

* 1 cup of dried apricots, finely chopped
* 2 tablespoons of brandy or apple juice
* 6 slices of bacon
* 1 medium onion, finely chopped
* 2 cups of bread crumbs
* 1 cup of chicken broth
* 1 boneless pork loin (4 to 5 lb.)
* Salt and pepper

Preparation steps:

* Soak apricots in brandy or apple juice for 1 hour or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
* Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper towel to drain; crumble into small pieces. Reserve bacon drippings.
* Saute onion in bacon dripping until tender.
* Combine cooked onion, drained apricots, bacon, bread crumbs, and chicken broth in a bowl.
* Slice pork in half lengthwise, cutting just to, but not through, the other long side. Open pork to lie flat.
* Spread stuffing mixture along inside of pork. Roll pork snugly, starting from long side and tucking in stuffing while rolling. Tie securely with kitchen string in 3 or 4 places to hold it shut.
* Place stuffed pork in greased crockpot, fat side up. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
* Cover and cook low for 4 hours.
* Let meat stand 10 minutes prior to removing string.

Slice, serve and enjoy!
