Roasted potatoes, wilted greens, roasted stuffed apples, braised cabbage and apple sauce are all possible side dishes to serve alongside a pork roast. A crisp, green salad and roasted root vegetables, such as parsnips, carrots and onions, are also delicious options that complement a meal of roasted pork.
To make Alton Brown's recipe for 10-minute applesauce, peel, core and quarter 3 golden delicious and 3 Fuji apples. Place in a sealable, microwave-safe container with 1 cup and 1 tablespoon of unfiltered apple juice, 2 tablespoons of cognac or brandy, 2 tablespoons of butter, 4 tablespoons of honey and 1/2 of a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Close the lid, leaving one corner open for steam to escape, then microwave on high for ten minutes. Blend mixture until it reaches the desired consistency and serve hot, or chill to use later.
