"A golden crust and apple-flavoured sauce add to this dish's appeal for entertaining. Choose a long, slender roast (rather than short and thick) because even though they cook in the same time, the slender one will be easier to slice and look more attractive on plates."

"We really enjoyed this!"
"This was dee-lish! I used Johnny's seasoning salt on the roast and instead of slicing the apples I diced them and the onions to the same size. I used fat free half-and-half, and because it has a tendency to break at a simmer, I added about 1/4 cup canned evaporated milk to make a more silky sauce. I used cooking spray rather than the 2 tablespoons of oil to save on fat, and I added some seasoned salt to the sauce. Served with a green salad and Israeli couscous that also had lentils and orzo in it I got from Trader Joes. What a fantastic meal! We will make this again!"
"Outstanding! We thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the savory with the touch of sweet from the apples. I made as recommended with one exception, I used 1/4 C of Calvados instead of apple cider. I knew this would work because I make a similar Wolfgang Puck recipe w/ this liquor. I did bump up the oven temperature to 375Â° because it was taking a bit too long (over 60 mins). I served with a green salad, the gravy over Recipe#255739 and a side of buttered peas. This seasoned pork roast could stand alone w/o the gravy. Just delightful!"
"Loved this!!! Because of time I did cook my roast in the crock pot on low for 8 hours with the seasonings, then made the cream sauce on the stovetop. The flavor was excellent! I used fat free half & half. I strongly recommend the cornstarch to thicken it up. Will make again!!!"
"Served this to a party of 12. They loved it. I might try a little less onion."
"So yummy! My husband preferred it without the sauce, but that's a typical "meat & potato" kinda guy for you. Personally, I loved the sauce, it was subtle and didn't overpower the flavor of the roast. Definitely one for the vault!"
"I made this for St. Patrick's Day and it was a great hit. I forgot to add the mustard to the cider sauce but it was still very good. Thank you for the recipe."
