I combined ideas from several other recipes found on recipezaar for this roast. We serve with pumpernickel bread, dumplings and sauerkraut.

Loved this so much! I am very glad that I found this recipe. I only had a 3.5 pound loin, so my time was about 2 hours (thank goodness for probe thermometers!), but I didn't cut back on anything else. I was rewarded with lots of yummy soft onion and apple just on the good side of mush, and a lot of the yummy sauce/paste. The flavors were perfectly balanced, and the aroma while it was baking was heavenly. I did use a metal 9"X13" pan and made a "cover" out of aluminum foil loosely tented in the middle and tightly crimped on the edges. Thank you so much for such a keeper of a recipe!
