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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Layer the onions and apples in the bottom of a shallow roasting pan.
  2. (I use a large casserole dish) Drizzle two tablespoons of the honey along with 1 teaspoon of the caraway seeds on top of the layer of apple and onion.
  3. Mix together apple butter, remaining honey and dijon mustard and reserve.
  4. Sprinkle the entire roast with garlic salt and place on the apples and onions.
  5. Spread Apple butter mixture on top of the roast and sprikle with the remaining teaspoon of caraway.
  6. Cover and bake at 350 for approx.
  7. 3 hours or until internal temp of the pork is 160.

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!

Excellent! My husband is not a fan of pork, but couldn't get enough of this dish. He can't wait until I make it again. I loved it too.

This was so good! I did it just as suggested by the recipe, except with the Dijon mustard, I used half smooth and half whole grain. I'll definitely make this again!
