    1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, season the pork with some salt and pepper and set aside.

    3) Place the roast meaty side down and cook it for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Remove it from a pan into a roasting pan and roast it for 1 hour.

    4) To make the stuffing, in a large sauté pan, add the butter and olive oil and let it preheat over medium heat.

    5) Add the onion, celery and sage leaves and cook them for about 10 minutes or until the veggies have softened.

    6) In a large bowl, toss together the cooked veggies, chopped apple, bread, cranberries and chicken stock.

    7) Arrange the stuffing along side the roast and continue cooking for another 35 to 40 minutes or until the meat registers 160 degrees when tested with a meat thermometer.

    8) Cover the roast and let it stand for 10 minutes.

    9) Meanwhile, make the sauce by adding the chicken stock, maple syrup and apple cider in a sauce pan and cook it over medium heat for about 5 minuets.

    10) Add the corn starch slurry and cook it for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Turn the heat off and add the vinegar, stir it in.

    Slice and serve with the stuffing and sauce.
