1 boneless whole pork loin roast (2 to 3 pounds)

Cut roast in half; place in a 5 qt slow cooker. Combine the broth, apple juice and mustard; pour over roast. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 4.5 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
Remove roast and keep warm. For gravy, strain cooking juices and skim fat. Pour juices into a saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with pork.
