  1. Sprinkle thyme and pepper over roast and press into the meat. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 450° for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 325°; bake 1-1/4 hours longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160°-170°.
  2. Fifteen minutes before roast is done, saute apples in butter in a skillet until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon; cover and keep warm. Saute mushrooms in the same skillet until tender; set aside.
  3. Remove roast from oven; sprinkle with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Transfer to a serving platter; cover and keep warm. Pour cider into baking pan; stir to loosen browned bits. Transfer to a saucepan; add broth, cream, brown sugar and remaining salt. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into broth mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms and heat though.
  4. To serve, garnish roast with apples and thyme springs if desired. Serve with mushroom sauce. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"Delicious. Bu t since I am extremely lactose intolerant and just found out that I am pre-diabetic I had to adjust the recipe a little:

NO salt or brown sugar. fewer apples, yogurt instead of whipping cream and I substituted some red wine for the apple juice.
I must admit - it was GREAT!"
