1Place pork in self-sealing plastic bag; mix together soy sauce, apple cider, garlic, and black pepper; pour over pork, seal bag and refrigerate overnight (4 to 24 hours). Remove pork from marinade (discard marinade), place in shallow pan and roast in 350 degree F oven for 35-45 minutes (about 20 minutes per pound), until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the roast reads 145ºF. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes.
2 Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together apple butter, horseradish, and five-spice; taste for seasoning and add salt to taste.
