I have a recipe that I want to make this weekend, Braised Pork Roast with Five-Spice Rub and Apple/Onion Compote. Fall, football, the World Series... Perfect for a braise! The caveat is that my husband does not care for Five-Spice Powder. You are supposed to rub it all over the roast. I know the ingredients and have also seen some sites that give suggest supstitutions. I don't like the thought of using chili, or cinnamon, or nutmeg. I think that cinnamon and nutmeg would work if they were sprinkled on the apples and onions, but on the roast??? Any idea of what you would use, keeping in mind that it is pork cooking with apples, onion, and apple cider. Thanks!
