Step 1

Cut slits on the top of the pork loin, I cut about an inch down. Plug in apple slices into the slits. Set aside.

Add the onions and remaining apple slices down in the slow cooker. Lay over the slices of butter. Add the pork loin. Sprinkle the pork with the salt, pepper and cinnamon. Add the thyme. Drizzle over the honey.

Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time. When the cooking time is done. Remove the pork onto a platter and let rest for at least 5 minutes.

Slice, serve and enjoy!
