Family friendly apple and walnut pork roast

This family friendly meal is perfect for a cool evening to bring everyone together around the table.

Prepare in the oven or the slow cooker – we’ve given the method for both options.

Need to feed more than 4 people? Just grab a bigger shoulder of pork and add some more veg. Need to feed fewer people? Make the recipe as is and use the leftover meat for sandwiches and the leftover veg for a salad for lunch the next day.

This recipe comes DIRECTLY from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Instructions
  1. Lay the pork shoulder out flat on a bench. Combine apples, walnuts, onion, cinnamon and turmeric together well. Spread apple mix over pork and roll up as tightly as possible. You may want to tie it together with some cooking string to keep the meat rolled.
  2. IF USING THE OVEN: Preheat oven to 180C. Place rolled pork into a roasting dish with chopped sweet potato, parsnips and carrots placed around the meat. Roast in the oven for 35- 40 minutes until cooked through and veggies are tender.
  3. IF USING A SLOW COOKER: Place rolled pork in the cooker with sweet potato, parsnips and carrot pieces. Cook on a low setting for 5 hours.
  4. For both methods of cooking, when ready to serve, steam beans until tender crisp on the stovetop or in the microwave. Slice pork and divide between 4 plates with the roasted vegetables and beans to serve.
