We think that pork is a very underrated cut of meat. It has a specific flavour but it can be mild, which helps you to add all kinds of flavours to it. Especially if you have some fat, pork can be quite rich though and a bit of added sweetness is always welcome. Apples are often added to pork in different forms and our recipe is no different. This Roasted pork roll with apples is a hearty meal that’s perfect for that weekend lunch or dinner meal with friends.

Roasted pork roll suggestions

You can either slice your pork loin into one flat piece of meat or ask your butcher with a much sharper knife to do it for you. The slow roasting helps cook the stuffing and pork to be tender and tasty while finishing it off with a beautiful roasted brown crust on the outside. A well-rounded blend of apple & prune proves the ideal stuffing for a roll of pork. You can serve this roast to both your family & dinner guests with equal confidence.
