  • 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.

  • 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.

I lowered the heat to 350 degrees; seared the outside; put the roast and the sweet potatoes and apples in the oven for 45 minutes. Turned out perfect.

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
