Seasoned Thyme Pork Roast

I've made this a couple times now. The second time, I made a smaller roast than was called for, so it was a little dry. Lesson: don't cook a 2 pound roast the same length of time as a 3 pound roast. The prunes and apples are delicious, by the way, and make a great side for this.

1 pork loin roast (3 lb.)
2 onions, sliced
3 tablespoons oil
½  cup brown sugar barbecue sauce
¼  cup apple juice
2 tablespoons dried thyme leaves
6 apples, sliced
½ cup pitted prunes


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350º.  Brown pork and onions in hot oil in large ovenproof pot on medium-high heat 3 min., turning occasionally.
  2. Combine barbecue sauce, apple juice and thyme.  Pour over ingredients in pot; cover with ovenproof lid.  Simmer an additional 10 min., then place in oven.
  3. Bake 2 hr.  Add apples and prunes; bake an additional 30 min. or until pork is cooked through and apples are tender.

  • Serves 10.   
  • Prep: 15 min  |  Total: 2 hr. 45 min.
