Ingredients for crispy pork roast with apple onion gravy.

  3. Use a sharp knife to score the pork rind at 1-inch intervals. Pat the skin dry once more with paper towels.
  4. Cutting slits into the pork roast.
     
  5. Rub garlic powder all over the pork. Drizzle in olive oil, then sprinkle liberally with salt. Make sure to get everything between the scored lines on the rind, as well. Place in oven and cook at 460 F for 45 minutes, until top is golden.
  6. A pork roast cut with several slits.
     
  7. Reduce oven heat to 350 F. It should could for at least another 1 1/2 hours. While pork continues to cook, start gravy. Place butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook for a few minutes until softened.
  8. Onions being sauteed in an Instant Pot.

  17. Stir in cream cheese and applesauce. If you want this gravy silky smooth, puree it in a blende or with an emersion blender. I left mine as is.
  18. Adding cream cheese and applesauce to the mixture.
     
  19. After the one hour mark of the roast at 350F, add any veggies you might want around the roast or in a pan next to the roast. Just chop them into bite-sized pieces and coat in some seasonings first. Continue cooking the roast and veggies for another 30 minutes.
  20. Roasted vegetables on a sheet pan.
     
  21. To check if the pork is cooked, pierce the thickest part of the meat with a knife. The meat is cooked when the juices run clear (no blood). You can also use a thermometer to check - it should read at 160 F.
