    1. Combine juice concentrate, honey, cumin, cinnamon and chilli powder in a large bowl. Add pork; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours, turning pork occasionally.
    2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat oil in a very large ovenproof dish over medium-high heat. Add pork; brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe pan clean.
    3. Place sweet potato, onion, carrot, apple, salt and wine in dish. Place pork on top of vegetables; brush with marinade. Cover with aluminium foil.
    4. Roast pork until instant-read meat thermometer inserted in the centre registers 75°C, about 40 minutes. The juices should run clear when a skewer is inserted in the meat.
    5. Place pork on a cutting board. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir butter into vegetables. Slice pork; serve with vegetables.

    With their peppery taste, Chinese mustard greens are a good foil for the sweetness of the vegetables and fruits in this recipe. Try buk choy (also known as white mustard greens) and gai choy.
