Pork and apples go great together! The pork is tender and very tasty; my kids love it.
Empty the jar of applesauce into a saucepan on medium heat and allow applesauce to come to a slow boil.
Add olive oil to another pan and sear the pork on high heat on all sides then place in slow cooker.
Top pork with sliced onions. Cover pork and onions with boiling applesauce. Cook on low for about 8 hours until done.
You can server the pork with or without the applesauce. If you serve the applesauce you can add some herbs and/or Dijon mustard.
