Roast Pork with Apples & Onions

Always fun to try new recipes, and this one (from a Taste of Home magazine) has been sitting in my recipe folder waiting for the right time to be used. I had a pork roast that I had purchased on a good sale, and thought that this recipe would be delicious to serve for this past Sunday dinner.

I usually serve roast with potatoes and carrots, but decided to serve sweet potatoes and green beans (with a sprinkling of bacon pieces) as the side dishes, instead. It turned out to be a delicious meal for this cool, autumn weather that we are experiencing these days.

Roast Pork with Apples & Onions

1 boneless whole pork loin roast (about 3 lbs.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3 large Golden Delicious apples, cut into wedges
1 or 2 large onions, cut into wedges
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. 
Brown roast in oil on all sides in a large nonstick skillet.
Place in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray.
Arrange apples, onions and garlic around roast; sprinkle with rosemary.
(Optional: I like to add a bit of water, maybe 1/8 to 1/4 cup.)
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours (or more) until well done.
(I made few slight changes from the original recipe.)

This recipe will be kept in my collection of favorites from now on. We loved it ... the pork was so tasty, flavored with the apples, onions, and seasonings.

  1. I have that recipe in my list of ones to try also...just waiting for a good sale on port roasts! I'm glad to know it's a good one. Looks delicious! -cristy

  2. This looks so-so good--I love apples and pork--this could go in the crockpot? Only the apples would lose that wonderful roasted flavor and texture--

  3. This looks delicious, Mom! Thanks for sharing. Also, you do such a good job taking pics!
