Cider Pork Roast

This is so tasty. I got Justin to make it for dinner the other day since he had the day off and had time to devote to cooking. I got this Eastern European recipe from my mom. Who knows where she got it from. I forgot to take the picture before slicing it up when the roast was whole and so tender it was falling apart. It was a beautiful sight. The combination of pork and apples really compliment each other. This is nice and sweet without being overpowering. We used Granny Smith apples. I didn't want to use some of the softer-fleshed varieties because they basically disintegrate in the pot. Ingredients: 1 pork shoulder or sirloin roast, about 2 lbs 2 tablespoons oil 5 cups apple juice or cider 3 tablespoons beef bouillon 1 teaspoon dry mustard 1 teaspoon black pepper 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut in chunks 3 carrots, peeled and cut in 2-inch chunks 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced into wedges 1 medium onion, sliced into wedges cornstarch Method: 1.
