Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 (2 - 2 1/2 lb) boneless pork shoulder roast
2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp quick-cooking tapioca
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp pepper
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup apple juice
Hot cooked brown rice for 6 to 8 for serving, if desired.

Trim fat from the roast.

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet and brown the roast on all sides; drain.  Transfer to a crock pot or slow cooker.

Sprinkle the tapioca, thyme, and pepper over the roast; add the onion and cherries.  Pour the juice over all.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours or on high for half that time.

Remove meat to a warm serving platter.

Skim any fat from the cooking juices.  Serve the pork with the cooking juices over rice, if desired.
