Apple Pork Roast {slow cooker}

I just couldn't wait to post this recipe. This is the pork roast that I made for our dinner this evening.
It is SUPER simple! I saw a photo on Pinterest with a pork roast slit with apple slices in it. How clever! I happened to have picked up a pork roast a few weeks ago and it has just been hanging out in my freezer.
So I thought today would be the perfect day to cook it up in the slow cooker. It was the first snow fall in my area (yes, my daughter had to make snow angels in the wet, barely-covering-the-grass snow this morning) so this just hit the spot!

The roast came out fork-tender and not dry at all. The apples gave it awesome flavor all the way throughout the meat. This is a pork roast I will make again! The measurements are approximate, as I just poured it the slow cooker, so adjust as you see fit.

Pour apple juice in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Cut slits into the top of the pork roast.
Put an apple slice in each of the slits in the roast, reserving the rest of the apple slices.
Place roast in the slow cooker and sprinkle with pepper, salt, and ground cinnamon.
