It’s fall and I’m craving pork roast. This delicious pork roast with herbs recipe is a whole lot of wonderfulness all simmered together with apples and love. Definitely mind-blowing and the pork roast is simple to throw together for a quick dinner. That means if you are a busy person who likes to eat – this is the roast for you.
Here’s how you make it my friends – first, get yourself a good pork tenderloin roast. Place it on a pan or tray so you can work with it. I use my Fiestaware Baking Tray from HomerLaughlin.com for working with roasts and fish because it is such a large plate and very easy to wash. I don’t have to worry about cutting board juices dripping on my table because the plate captures all of that.
Once you get the pork all herbed up, simply put it in a baking pan and dependent upon it’s weight, bake that baby up on top of some apples and it will turn out more tender than ever (see recipe below). This season I have been reviewing the Fiestaware Foundry Bakeware line in my test kitchen (bottom) and have been thrilled with the results — when I bake meat on the bakeware, particularly when I cover the baking item with foil, I have noticed that the meat comes out more tender. Use this pork as a main dish then save it for lunch the next day – I love the slices of pork on top of a salad with mustard vinaigrette dressing.
