2
tablespoons Dijon mustard
1
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted

Turn pork; repeat cutting to other side; open flat. If pork is thicker than 3/4 inch, cover pork with plastic wrap and pound until about 3/4-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap.

Pour apple juice into skillet; cook 2 to 3 minutes to dissolve any caramelized juices in bottom of skillet. Stir in salt and pepper; pour over pork.
  • 4 Cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until meat thermometer inserted into center of pork reads 160°F.
