Roast Pork with Apples & Onions

The sweetness of the apples and onions nicely complements the roast pork. With its crisp skin and melt-in-your-mouth flavor, this is my family's favorite weekend dinner. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

    Roast aroma was wonderful but my family said it lacked flavor.

    So easy! Very tasty and moist. The only change I made was I did not brown it before hand. I place pork in baking pan with the apples & onions and coated it with the 1 TBSP olive oil and seasonings. Smelled excellent and a perfect meal on a cold winters night! Thank you!

    I thought this was very good! My apples and onions were not mushy at all. I did be sure to turn them half way through the cook time. Used kosher salt on the pork. Bake time was only about 45 minutes and my pork was medium and perfect!

    Delicious! A bit too many apples so I'll cut back on those next time. Otherwise, really really good :-)

    My Family loved the Pork, but weren't all crazy about eating the apples and onions, although that's what gave the awesome flavor! Served with a side of cilantro rice and some green beans, great meal will definitely make again!

    This was fabulous. Pork was tender and juicy, apples and onions just right. Will make this again. And again.

    Excellent! The roast was nice and moist. I think the apples and onions helped it stay that way. I will definitely make this again.
