Thoughtless Thursday: Apple Dijon Pork Roast

September 10, 2009

Given that I think fruit and mustard go so well with pork, I really wanted to try a mixture with apples (I had 4 that I needed to do something with).  I waffled a bit on whether to use chipotle peppers (as I had the other half of that can I used for the chipotle chicken soup), but ultimately I thought I’d go with the safer and more subtle route and use the dijon mustard.  The flavor of this dish came out far more subtle than I expected, but it had a really lovely finish.

Ingredients:

  • boneless pork shoulder roast (mine was 3.5 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 4 apples, peeled and cored (I used Golden Delicious)

Directions:

  1. Layer your apple slices over the bottom of the crock.
  2. Add the roast.
  3. Mix your applesauce and dijon mustard.
  4. Pour the apple/dijon mixture over the pork.
  5. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or low from 8-10 (I’m not entirely certain how long mine cooked as I have a lovely temperature probe on my programmable crock pot.

Cook’s Note: My husband thinks we should add a touch of cinnamon in the sauce.  We’ll try that next time. If you give it a shot, let me know how it turns out!

    This is a perfect fall dish. I must confess, I have not mixed sweet and savory with my dinner dishes. It makes me a lil nervous..BUT this looks terrific

      I think it really depends on WHAT you’re mixing, but I always have good luck with fruit and some thing savory like mustard on pork or chicken.

    Can’t wait to try it, especially when I get my homemade applesauce made next week.
