1.) Combine apple juice, garlic, thyme, parsley, mustard, soy sauce, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined. Place in a resealable plastic bag, then place pork into bag. Turn the pork around in the bag a few times to make sure that it’s thoroughly coated in marinade. Place in fridge and let sit for 4-5 hours.
2.) When ready to start cooking, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then in a large pot over medium-high heat, melt butter. When melted, add onion and nutmeg and cook until onions are soft.
3.) When onions are soft, remove pork roast from marinade, wiping away excess and reserving leftover marinade to baste. Place pork in pot and sear on all sides for about 5 minutes on each side.
4.) Remove pot from heat and pour some of the marinade over the roast. Place in oven and cook for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Using the marinade, baste every so often to keep pork moist and to flavour.
5.) When pork is finished and juices run clear, remove from oven and allow to rest for five minutes. Then thinly slice the pork into 1/2″ slices.
6.) Serve and enjoy!
