  • 1/2 of a small onion
  • 1 apple cored and sliced
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 bag of mini ruby red potatoes
  • Cayenne pepper to taste (for potatoes)
  • 1/4 cup water or apple juice

Kale Salad:

  • 1/4 head of kale
  • 1/4 green pepper chopped
  • 1/4 red pepper chopped
  • 1/8 cup olive oil

  1. Cut slits into the pork tenderloin about an inch or so apart. Stuff the apple slices into each slit.
  2. Add water/apple juice to the slow cooker.  Chop onion and add to the bottom of the slow cooker, then place pork tenderloin on top.

  4. Set the slow cooker to low and cook for 4 hours.
  5. Boil fingerling potatoes until fully cooked (they should slide off a fork easily)

  7. Remove potatoes from water and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes.  Place on baking tray lined with parchment paper.  Use a glass to smash each potato so that it is slightly flattened. Season the potatoes with whatever you choose, we used cayenne, salt and pepper.

  9. Wash your kale and strain. Tear into small pieces and add to a bowl with chopped peppers.
