The Star of the Show – Pork Loin Roast with Apple Sauce

The centerpiece of our Sunday Roast is a perfectly cooked Pork Loin Roast, tender and full of flavor. To get started, gather these ingredients:


  • 3 lbs (1.4 kg) pork loin roast
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Make small incisions in the pork loin roast and insert slivers of garlic.
  3. Rub the roast with olive oil and season with dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  4. Place the roast on a roasting pan and cook in the preheated oven for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C).
  5. Let the roast rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with apple sauce on the side.

The Perfect Accompaniment – Tangy Apple Sauce

A Sunday Roast is incomplete without a luscious Apple Sauce to complement the pork. Here’s how you can make it:


  • 4 apples, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. In a saucepan, combine the diced apples, water, sugar, and ground cinnamon.
  2. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the apples are soft and easily mashed.
  3. Use a potato masher to mash the cooked apples to your desired consistency.
  4. Let the apple sauce cool before serving alongside the Pork Loin Roast.

Creamy Delight – Leek n’ Cheese Mash

The Leek n’ Cheese Mash is a creamy and cheesy side dish that complements the richness of the pork roast.


  • 2 lbs (900g) potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Boil the potatoes in a large pot of salted water until tender.
  2. In a separate pan, sauté the sliced leeks in butter until they become soft and slightly caramelized.
  3. Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the sautéed leeks, milk, butter, shredded cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper.
  4. Mash the mixture until smooth and creamy. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste.
