Roasted Italian Pork with Apples and Potatoes - get the recipe at

Red potatoes, sweet yellow onions and tender gala apples are roasted with a generous sprinkling of Italian spices and then drizzled with cider vinegar. The potato, onion, and apple combination is amazing on it’s own, but with the addition of Italian Red Wine Pork, this goes from a delicious side dish to a fantastic main dish.

Inspired by the leftover pork roast in my refrigerator, this Roasted Italian Pork with Apples and Potatoes is one of the best meals I have ever made using leftovers.

I love the unexpected sweetness from the apples with the slight tang from cider vinegar. My family loves this meal and I frequently make the Italian Red Wine Pork just so that we can make this.

Roasted Italian Pork with Apples and Potatoes

Servings: 6 servings


  • 6 medium red potatoes about 4-5 cups chopped into 1/2" - 3/4" pieces
  • 1 medium yellow onion about 1 cup, chopped small
  • 2 apples I used gala, about 1 ½ cups diced small
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 cups Italian Red Wine Pork Roast shredded and roughly chopped to bite size


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the potatoes, onion and apples in a large mixing bowl. Stir together the oil and all of the spices. Pour the spice mixture over the ingredients in the bowl and toss  with your hands, to coat all of the pieces thoroughly.
  • Spread the mixture across a large baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Roast for 30-40 minutes, stirring with a spatula every 15-20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Remove from the oven, drizzle with the vinegar and toss quickly to coat. Add the chopped pork and toss lightly to combine. Serve warm and Enjoy!


I made this for the first time over 3 years ago and this is still my favorite way to use leftover Italian Red Wine Roast Pork. I roughly chop the shredded pork and then reheat in the microwave for a few minutes before mixing it in with the roasted potatoes and apples.
