    • 2 cups apple cider
    • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    • 1½ cups water
    • 1 3-lb pork loin roast
    • 2 tsp vegetable oil

    Step 1
    Combine ¼ the onion, ½ the apple and the garlic in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth. Transfer mixture, along with the apple cider and water, to a slow cooker.
    Step 2
    Season the roast with salt and pepper. Combine the ginger and flour in a shallow container. Gently press the roast onto the flour mixture to coat all sides. Brush off any excess flour. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy skillet. Brown the pork in the hot oil, turning until golden on all sides.
    Step 3
    Place the browned roast in the slow cooker, and scatter the celery and the remaining onion and apple on top. Cook on low for 4 hours, then add carrots. Cook for an additional 3 hours.
    Step 4
    Remove the cooked roast and carrots to a heated platter. If desired, thicken the cooking juices from the slow cooker to make a gravy.
