Crockpot Honey Ginger Apple Pork and Mashed Cauliflower

This recipe has easy and delicious written all over it. My mom is in town and was seriously impressed. She usually is the one doing the cooking (or burning) and I'm the one eating! I'm going to make this short and sweet since she is slowly trying to sneak out with Minnie....she calls her "my granddog." Now you see where I get it.

Crockpot Honey Ginger Apple Pork
  • 2.5-ish lb pork shoulder roast
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 apples, cored and sliced
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  • 1 bay leaf
Mashed Cauliflower
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • dried chives, salt and pepper to taste

  • Get out your crockpot.
  • Add your broth, then onions, then pork, then apples, then all your spices, garlic, honey, ginger, salt/pepper, and bay leaf.
