Pork Roast with Apple, Sage Bread Stuffing
- 1 medium size pork roast
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup onion, chopped
- 1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
- 1 1/2 cup dried bread cubes, can be homemade or store bought suffing cubes
- 1 tsp. Bell’s brand seasoning
- 1/2 tbsp. dried sage
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
Prepare the pork roast by placing on a large cutting board. Slice the roast open by cutting through with a sharp knife being careful not to cut all the way through. You should be able to lay the roast out open and flat.
Melt the butter in a skillet and add the onion. Saute’ until translucent, approx. 10 minutes. Add the apples and the bread cubes and toss well. Add the seasonings. Add the broth and mix together well.
Spread the stuffing mix onto one side of the prepared pork roast. Fold over the other side of the roast and tie together with butcher’s twine. You may have to push the stuffing in to create a tight seal. It doesn’t matter if some of the stuffing is protruding. (see pictures) Bake at 350F for approximately 30 minutes, rotating the meat once. Check the internal temperature by using a meat thermometer stuck into the meat portion only, not into the stuffing mixture. Return to the oven until the temperature should read at least 160F when done. Remove from the oven and tent with aluminum foil for about 5 minutes before slicing.
