Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place pork in roasting pan; spread 2 tablespoons (30 mL) Dijon mustard over roast. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Place onion and apple around pork. Add thyme, rosemary and bay leaf. Pour in 1/2 cup (125 mL) wine, and stir. Roast uncovered for 1 1/2 hours.

Remove roast and bay leaf from pan. Stir  remaining ingredients, loosening any bits stuck to the bottom.

Mash the mixture (the ragout should be chunky) and add the remaining 1 teaspoon (5 mL) of Dijon and 1/2 cup (125 mL) red wine, and chicken broth. Place roasting pan over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture reduces and thickens.  Slice roast and serve with the ragout spooned on top. Makes 4-6 servings.
