Apple Pinwheel Pork Roast

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. Many people with autoimmune illnesses feel better following a grain free and refined sugar free diet. I am so glad I went to see a functional doctor who put me on the road to better health.

Here I am again sweating what to write for this blog. I am at a total loss today. Maybe it’s because my brain is running on empty because of lack of sleep. My son has been sick this week and I have not had a lot of sleep. My brain feels like mush. My energy level is at a low. Hoping it is better by tomorrow. For those of you who are caregivers to others, I hope that someone at some time is able to come and give you a couple of hours off or a day off so that you can continue to give your energy to those who are in your care. Maybe no one has told you that you are amazing. Let me tell you “You are amazing. Thanks for all you do to take care of someone.”

So I am always looking to make something different and tasty. I remembered my mom making a beef dish that was stuffed with apple slices and onion slices at our restaurant. It made me think that pork would also be tasty that way. I guess you could say this recipe has a Swedish twist to it. This pork roast is stuffed with apples, onions and a couple of garlic cloves. When cutting the roast if you are not a garlic fan you will not want to eat the whole clove. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family. Have with Apple Pinwheel Pork Roast Gravy.

Nutritional Facts are without potatoes.

 

1/2 a peeled apple cut in thirds

1/2 an onion cut in thirds

3 whole garlic cloves

2 tablespoons pink salt

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon granulated onion

1/4 cup water

1 (6) lb roast

* 4 whole potatoes

 

Preheat oven to 350. If your roast is tied together push apple slices, onion slices, and whole garlic cloves inside pork. If the roast is not tied together cut a slit in the middle of the roast with a knife. Make sure the slit goes all the way through the entire roast. Mix the seasoning together and rub all over the roast. Place the roast inside an oven bag and pour remaining seasonings on top. If you can eat potatoes and water place whole potatoes inside the bag with the roast. Close oven bag with the zip tie provided inside the box. (Potatoes are optional). Follow the directions on the insert inside the box of oven bags. Place oven bag on a baking rack and place inside oven. Bake 2 hours and 10 minutes.
