Garlic-Apple Pork Roast Recipe

This is the meal I have become famous for, and it is so simple. The garlic and apple flavors really compliment the pork. It's great with steamed fresh asparagus and roasted red potatoes. —Jennifer Loos, Washington Boro, Pennsylvania

Amazingly both of my very picky kids love this pork recipe. I brown the roast first and cook it for about 5 hours depending on size. Super easy and delicious.

I did brown the roast on all sides; did not cut it in half. Cooked 4 hours on medium. Turned out great, and also used leftovers as pulled pork sandwiches.

I browned the pork first, used apple cider instead of the water, and fresh parsley. Only cooked it for four hours, using a 3.87lb roast. Perfect !!!
