One of my favorite reasons for Fall is the use of apples in so many dishes... that involve pork. No to apple pie, no to apple bundles. I kinda hate baked fruit(which you're gonna find today's whoopie pies funny) I just have never been a fan of baked apples. The texture I think, but I do love the added flavor they give dishes & this one was no different. I stumbled upon this apple salsa at Aldis and I knew instantly what was going to happen with it. and it didn't involve tortilla chips. and if you can't find this salsa, never fear...read the notes section and I will have an alternate idea.
1 pork butt or roast
1 jar of Apple salsa
1 small sweet onions, sliced thin
2 apples, cut in small pieces
1 tsp of red pepper flakes
1/4 cup peach vodka, or brandy
Place meat in crockpot and dump in all ingredients, cook on low for 6 hrs. and I also cut up a sweet potato & a few red bliss potatoes & with about an hour left I added them to the crockpot, just stirred them about every 15 minutes.
If you cannot find this, try using 1 cup of applesauce, 1 small can of Mexican spiced tomatoes & a pinch of cinnamon & nutmeg, along w/salt & pepper to taste.
These would also be really good as tacos & fajitas, we've made them that way before and yum!
This was so easy to make and my kitchen smelled superb!!!
