Taste of Tuesday - Autumn Pork Roast

One of my favorite things about Fall is the food! As I've mentioned we live very close to farms. Which means when these few months come around we go and splurge on fresh veggies and fruit. I really only like certain veggies though, maybe only 3 kinds. So when my mom put this meal in front of me years ago, I wasnt sold at first. But...then I tried it and I can honestly say it's my favorite meal. We only eat it during the Fall so it's something I always look forward to. 

  • 1 bone-in pork loin roast (5 pounds)
  • 8 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 8 carrots, halved lengthwise
  • 2 medium onions, quartered
  • 1 small pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh sage or 1 tablespoon rubbed sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 baking Apples, quartered

  1. Place the roast in a large baking pan. Arrange potatoes, carrots, onions and pumpkin around roast.
  2. Add water to the pan. Sprinkle meat and vegetables with sage and pepper; dot vegetables with butter (if you have a stick of butter cut it to 2 tbsp and then cut little slices and place around the pan evenly) 
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake, uncovered, for 1 hour
  4. Place the apples around roast; cover and bake for 1-1/4 hours, basting every 30 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 160°-170°
  5. Enjoy!

I've never made roast in the oven before. I've only done it in the crock pot so I'll have to try this! Thanks for linking up!

That looks really good. And I think I have all those veggies in my fridge already from my CSA.

I'm not much of a veggie guy, either. But this looks pretty decent. I'd try it. :) Stopping over via the Weekend Wander Blog Hop.
