1 hr 10 mins
- 3 pounds pork loin roast
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 Tablespoons bacon fat (or vegetable oil)
- 1 medium onion, sliced thin
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 2 cups MUSSELMAN’S® Fresh Pressed Cider

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pat pork loin dry with paper towels and season all sides with salt and pepper.
Add bacon fat (or vegetable oil) to a braiser or Dutch Oven and place over medium heat. Place seasoned pork loin in pan. Scatter onions and garlic around the edges. Cook about 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
In a bowl combine apple cider and apple butter together.
Pour mixture over browned roast and onions. Cover and place in a 350 degree oven for one hour or until internal temperature has reached at least 145 degrees.
