Whenever I make this roast for company they always ask for the recipe. I have also made this with a pork tenderloin and it comes out great!

14 servings


  • 1 teaspoon dried sage

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 6 pounds pork loin roast

  • 4 tart apples - peeled, cored, cut into 1 inch chunks

  • 1 red onion, chopped

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 cup apple juice

  • cup real maple syrup


  1. In a small bowl, combine the sage, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, salt and pepper. Rub over roast. Cover, and refrigerate roast for 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  3. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan, and bake in the preheated oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Drain fat.

  4. In a medium bowl, mix apples and onion with brown sugar. Spoon around roast, and continue to cook for 1 hour more, or until the internal temperature of the roast is 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer the roast, apples and onion to a serving platter, and keep warm.

  5. To make the gravy, skim excess fat from meat juices. Pour drippings into a medium heavy skillet. Stir in apple juice and syrup. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until liquid has been reduced by half, about 1 cup. Slice the roast, and serve with gravy.
