Weekends in November are the start of winter hibernation for many of us in Ontario. It’s chilly outside, and all I want to do is spend time inside recharging before the holiday rush. What better excuse to spend all day recharging than having a pot of stew simmering away in the oven for hours?

November means comfort food, which to me, means a big pot of stew bubbling on the stove all afternoon, while you curl up on the couch with a good book. Doesn’t that sound magical? In reality, it’s pretty challenging in our always-on-the-go world. To have so much leisure time at home to have a slow-cooked stew or sauce every weekend, that’s where this slow cooker Sunday sauce comes in!

This apple cider-braised pork shoulder is the epitome of fall cooking. The braising of delicious Ontario pork shoulder blade is slow and measured. It makes you still for a little bit and smile and marvel at the change of the seasons.

Have you tried the picnic shoulder cut of Ontario pork? If not, then you need to run to your closest butcher shop as soon as you can – it is now officially my favourite cut. Not only is it succulent and full of delicious meaty flavour, but it’s also extremely economical and very affordable.

This sausage-stuffed pork loin roast is a perfect way to celebrate the beginning of fall. Let the kitchen fill with the smell of cooking pork, apples, and bacon. Serve the roast hot with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables or let it cool and slice thinly to make a mountain of delicious pork sandwiches!

Although the French-style name has nothing to do with the traditional and famous French onion soup, it inspired me to revamp the recipe into something utterly delicious and indulgent.
