Roast Pork with Apples 


350o 1 hour 50 minutes


1 3lb bone-in pork shoulder roast, trimmed

1 clove garlic, thinly sliced

¼ cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp soy sauce

2 lbs small red potatoes, scrubbed and halved

3 medium yellow onions, halved

2 medium tart apples, cored and sliced


Preheat oven.  Using small knife, cut small slits in pork.  Insert a garlic slice into each slit.  Place pork in a large roasting pan.

In a small bowl, combine apple juice, mustard and soy sauce.  Brush half of sauce over roast.  

Roast pork for 1 hour, basting with remaining sauce.

Add potatoes and onions to roasting pan. Roast for 40 minutes

Add apples to roasting pan.  Roast until a thermometer inserted into the center of roast registers 170o (about 10 minutes)

Place roast on a cutting board.  Let stand for 10 minutes

VARIATION:  To save time, use 3 one pound tenderloins instead of the shoulder roast.  Add potatoes and onions to pan; roast at 350o brushing pork with sauce for 40-50 minutes.  For less servings, reduce the number of tenderloins used.
