Pork Roast with Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Roast two stars of the autumn harvest -- apples and sweet potatoes -- alongside pork for a satisfying meal in a single pan. You won't lose a drop of flavor when you use the pan drippings to make a quick sauce.

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pork roast (2 1/2 pounds), tied at 1-inch intervals
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 Gala apples, quartered
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth


  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Coat a heavy-bottomed metal roasting pan with 2 teaspoons oil. Place pork in center and season with salt and pepper. Roast until top is golden, about 15 minutes.

  2. Toss apples and sweet potatoes with remaining 2 teaspoons oil and add to pan, arranging around pork. Return to oven and roast until apples and sweet potatoes are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of pork reads 140 degrees, about 20 minutes.

  3. Remove pork, apples, and sweet potatoes from pan. Allow meat to rest 10 minutes before slicing. To make the sauce, whisk flour into pan drippings over medium heat, then slowly whisk in chicken broth and cook until thickened.

    The cooking time for this recipe is much longer. Period. It is not that I "didn't do it right." Obviously, since my pork roast was 3.34 lbs. and Martha's recipe is for 2.25 lbs., I expected to need to leave it in the oven longer. But it took all of 2 hours to get it to the proper temperature. Like others who have reviewed this recipe, my roasted veggies were overcooked while waiting for the roast to finish. However, the flavor was good and this recipe is easy to do. Just adjust the time.

    Made this yesterday and it was pretty good. I kept it in the oven quite a bit longer. I will definitely make it again because it really took no effort. Next time I will make the gravy

    Don't use this recipe - it took twice as long to cook as specified in the instructions. When it finally was cooked, the potatoes and apples were greasy.

    Don't believe this recipe - it takes twice as long as specified to cook this dish properly. It took so long that I gave up and had leftovers for dinner
