This roast is simple enough for a Sunday supper with the family or elegant enough for entertaining. In either instance it is a snap to prepare. Dried fruit (pick seasonal favorites) create a colorful and immensely flavorful channel down the center of the roast. The mustard coating seals in the moisture creating a delicious crust.
Mediterranean flavors and fall harvest vegetables complement this succulent pork roast. This tasty dish is a cinch to prepare and is sure to satisfy any appetite. Younger kids can help by setting the table and older kids can wash and chop your family's favorite veggies.
For a delicious alternative to the pears, substitute for a tart green apple, such as Granny Smith. Instead of rosemary alone, you could combine it with sage and thyme, for a slightly more complex flavor. Green vegetables should be simple and along the lines of sauteed green beans with toasted almonds, or steamed and sauteed Brussels sprouts with hazelnuts.
