Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

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.  

Remove pork loin to a cutting board and allow to rest 15 minutes before slicing.
