as the title says I am a baker... Not a cook...

so for dinner today I wanted a pork roast.. dont know why its been a while since we had it and I have been kinda craving it... theres nothing better then a pork roast and apple sauce...

so I have a small pork roast and 4 tenderloins (family coming over) in a roasting pan.. I have chopped 4 apples and scattered them around the pan and have added 1 cup of apple juice and 1 cup of water.

What I am hoping will happen is this:

When the roast and tenderloin is about 95% done I am taking the foil off the roasting pan and letting the top element seer the meat... when hubby is cutting I want to drain the now cooked apples and juices and simmer them down making a glaze ...

will this work?

if not please tell me how to O wise cooks out there...

I can't help you with the glaze much. I do know you have to really watch the salt if you plan to reduce the juices or it will be

. I usually just spoon a bit of the drippings over the sliced pork while in the serving dish. I also throw sliced onion and carrots in while it is cooking. The combination works very well.

I dont use a glaze on my pork roasts..
But the apple juice and cooked down apples cooking with the roast will give it a gooood flavor. You can use a turkey baster and just keep basting the roast with the apple juices... yum!
What i do for my pork roast is put little holes in the meat and stick little slices of garlic into them. and then i rub the meat down with gravey master(browning liquid stuff)... then i season the roast, with a lot of black pepper and other spices like season salt and garlic/onion powder..etc..
I also set the roast on a chunked/cut up onion, with some water in the bottom of the pan, and the onion cooks with the roast and then after the roast ic cooked i make my gravy with those juices..
