  • 2 pounds pork loin
  • 1 ½ pounds baby new potatoes
  • 1 pound baby carrots
  • 1 large red onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup MUSSELMAN’S® Apple Butter
  • cup Dijon mustard
  • cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • salt and pepper


  1. Step 1
    Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, season the pork loin with salt and pepper and lay it in the skillet. Sear the pork loin on all sides to seal in the juices, about 8-10 minutes. (If using a regular skillet, add 1 tablespoon oil).

  2. Step 2
    Peel the red onion and cut into large chunks. Cover the bottom of a large 6-quart slow cooker with half of the onions, potatoes, and carrots. Lay the seared pork loin over the top and surround it with the remaining vegetables.

  3. Step 3
    In a small bowl, whisk the minced garlic, apple butter, dijon mustard, soy sauce and broth together. Pour the mixture over the pork and vegetables.

  4. Step 4
    Cover the crock pot and turn on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 4-6 hours. 

  5. Step 5
    When potatoes are tender, it is ready. Cut the tenderloin into thin slices and place on a platter, surrounded by the vegetables. 

  6. Step 6
    Taste gravy, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour gravy over pork and serve.

What others are saying about this recipe

  1. Kayte says:

    Outstanding. This is a solid recipe and will be making it into my regular rotation. I added bay leaves and some tsardust memories spice blend from Penzeys but I’m sure this dish would be stellar if left along as well. 10/10 would recommend.

    1. Musselman's says:

      Love the bay leaf idea👍. You should always spice a dish to your family’s personal tastes. The key is the wonderful pork glaze made from apple butter, Dijon mustard, and soy sauce.

  2. Margie says:

    I use apple juice in crockpot….in stead of beef broth…enhances flavor with the apple butter!!

  3. Donnamarie Jones says:

    I used sliced apple wedges in slits cut on top of tenderloin before I started cooking. Made the recipe even more a comfort food and brought the flavors of the season in

  4. Kathryn Dukes says:

    Excellent, my husband loved it!

  5. Kathryn Dukes says:

  6. Becky Alexander says:

    I love this dish! I will be adding it to our family cookbook. I added chopped apples to mine the last 15 minutes of cooking time. DELICIOUS 🥰

  7. Danni Blum says:

    this turned out terrible for my family. i followed directions to a T. Pork wayyyy to dry – sauce wayyyyy too mustardy flavor! we wasted a beautiful pork loin! i’m glad for whoever enjoyed it:)

  8. Flo says:

    This dish was just ‘fair’. Thank goodness my bf liked it (he’s easy to please) as I sent him home with leftovers. Too sweet for me. I could hardly finish it. I wouldn’t make it again. 😝

  9. Patricia E Aubrecht says:

    I am in the process of making this right now. I do not have dijon mustard so I’m using stone ground mustard. Do you think it will be ok?

    1. Musselman's says:

      You can use your favorite mustard for this recipe. We often match Dijon in recipes with apple butter because the tangy flavor balances the sweet.

  10. Angela says:

    Excellent flavor! Enjoyed this recipe very much. A repeat and recommended to all!
