A roast pork recipe with the flavours of autumn. A pork loin roasting joint is pan-seared, then baked with butternut squash in a delicious savoury and sweet sauce. Serve with roast potatoes and vegetables.
This recipes is one of the tastiest meals i have had in a LONG time. Absolutely loved it! Loved the sweetness. With the leftovers i "pulled" the Pork, mixed it with the leftover sauce and make sandwhiched. Delicious. - 27 Aug 2011
How delicious was this? Outstanding! I prepared exactly as written, but added some sliced granny smith apple and dried cranberries to the vegetable mix, and decreased the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. Roasted for about 1 hr 10 minutes, and let the meat rest before carving. Tender, flavorful, sweet, it was perfect. The house smelled wonderful while this was cooking. Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe, SJRJA, it's going to be a classic in this house. - 26 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Oh me, Oh my this is sssssooooo good. I did change a few things. I added 2 pealed apples to the squash mixture(only because I had tons of apples on hand) and I used fresh garlic, homemade apple sauce with cinnamon, so I didn't add any extra cinnamon. When I deglazed the pan with the wine, I added the onions, garlic, and extra two apples and let everything cook down some and carmelized the onions lightly. And just before I put it in the oven, I added a couple of small handfuls of dried crandberries for some tartness...........it turned out simply wonderful. We gave this recipe five stars. My husband loved it and I did as well. With autumn being my favorite season, I will make this dish often during my favorite time of the year. I served it with mashed patatoes, and German coleslaw from this site. This one is a keeper. - 18 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
