Transfer to 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Pour sauce over pork. Cover and cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until very tender.

Expert Tips

No need to peel the gingerroot and apples! They will contribute plenty of flavor before being strained out of the sauce.

You can measure, cut and mix all your sauce ingredients the night before, and refrigerate to make the morning prep time even quicker.
