Roast Pork with Sweet Potatoes and Apples

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


Honey and orange juice are among the complementary flavors enhancing this tasty pork loin roast. The roast is baked with apples and sweet potatoes, making it an excellent meal in one pot.

Cook Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 6


  • 1 boneless pork loin roast, 3 to 4 pounds, fat trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, quartered
  • 3 large apples, cored and quartered


Preheat the oven to 375°.

Coat a large ovenproof Dutch oven with vegetable oil and place over medium-high heat. When very hot, add the pork roast. Cook, turning, until all sides are browned, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat.

In a medium bowl, combine the honey, orange juice, apple juice concentrate, pepper, and brown sugar. Spoon over the pork roast. Place the sweet potatoes around the pork. Cover and bake for 2 hours. Pork should register about 150 ° on an instant read thermometer.

Place the apple quarters around the pork. Bake, uncovered, basting frequently, for 20 minutes, or until the apples are just tender. Let the pork stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve pork roast sliced, with the sweet potatoes and apples.
Serves 6.

Roast pork and sweet potatoes, Member LizBurkart

Amazing>>>so good, son-in-law has requested this for his birthday dinner! Loved it! This time I will cut the apples smaller and will lie the potatoes under the roast so they are more moist and cut the pepper to 1 1/2 tb. I really like the flavour that the pepper created but it was a bit much for the grandsons. This recipe will be used over and over!!
