- With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- In a large ovenproof pan, brown the roast in half the oil (2 tbsp/30 ml) on all sides. Season with salt and pepper. Set the meat aside on a plate. In the same pan, brown the onions and garlic. Add the broth, applesauce and mustard. Place the pork roast, rind side up, in the pan and bring to a boil.
- Cover and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Spread the potatoes around the meat and continue cooking for 1 hour. Remove the lid and cook for another hour or until the meat is fork-tender. Add the herbs.
- Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet, brown the apples in the remaining oil (2 tbsp/30 ml) and the honey. When ready to serve, place the apples around the roast.
