Chipotle Maple Glazed Pardon Roast

  1. Thaw your pardon roast according to package instructions if frozen.
  2. Following the package instructions, add your roast to a pan. Add your white wine and ½ cup apple cider into the bottom surrounding the roast, and then add your rosemary and thyme. Cover with foil and bake according to package instructions.
  3. While cooking, mix together your maple syrup, remaining apple cider, chipotle chile powder & flakes, hot sauce, garlic powder, salt / black pepper to taste, and apple cider vinegar.
  4. When you remove the foil from the roast before putting it back in the oven, brush a generous amount of your glaze on top. Brush more glaze over top every 5 minutes until it’s finished cooking.
  5. Remove from the oven, brush with a little more glaze, and let sit for a few minutes before cutting.

Herbed Cider Gravy

  1. In a sauce pot, add your vegan butter to melt. Once foamy, add in your flour to form a roux. Stir constantly for 2-3 minutes over medium heat.
  2. Slowly add in your apple cider and vegetable stock, whisking constantly to prevent lumps.
  3. Increase the heat to high, then add in your remaining ingredients. Whisk until it just starts to thicken, then reduce the heat to low and continue to cook until you’ve reached your desired thickness.
