Feeling the pressure of the Holiday Season?  Too much shopping to do?  Too much food to make?  Too many parties to attend?  Too little time?  Take a timeout.  Get your whole family to slow down and enjoy a meal together.  Enjoy the time you have with the ones you love this hectic season.  Cherish every moment.  This recipe can get you started.


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In your food processor, combine the rosemary, sage, garlic, salt and pepper and olive oil to make a paste.  Rub the paste on the outside of the boneless pork roast.
  3. Put the sliced onions into the roasting pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Add the thyme, bay leaves and 2 cups of the apple cider. Place seasoned pork roast in the pan.  Roast the pork at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until a beautiful brown crust has formed. Stir the onions and check that the cider has not evaporated.  You can always add apple cider if necessary.
  4. Turn the oven down to 350 degrees and roast for 30 minutes or until your meat thermometer reads 150 degrees.  Let the pork roast rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving. When ready cut the loin into thin slices.
