Place pork roast in freezer 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine cranberries and apple juice in small bowl; set aside.

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add apple; cook and stir 3 minutes. Add onion; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add water, if desired, to moisten mixture.

Drain cranberries, reserving juice. Stir cranberries into apple mixture; season with cinnamon, dried thyme, and pepper. Remove to medium bowl; set aside to cool slightly. Reserve 1/2 cup of fruit mixture.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place pork roast, fat side up, on cutting board. Insert knife horizontally into roast 1/2 inch from bottom, at long side of roast. Make long cut along bottom of roast, stopping 1/2 inch before opposite side of roast (do not cut all the way through). Open up roast; continue to cut through thicker half of roast to within 1/2 inch from bottom. Repeat until roast is an even 1/2-inch thickness all over when laid out.

Spread stuffing onto roast, leaving 1/2-inch border around edges. Starting with short side of roast, roll up tightly. Secure with kitchen twine at 1-inch intervals.

Heat oil in same skillet over medium heat. Brown roast on all sides, about 5 minutes. Place in roasting pan.

Roast 50 to 60 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140°F. Transfer to cutting board and let stand 5 minutes. (Internal temperature will continue to rise 5°F to 10°F during stand time.)

Meanwhile, combine reserved apple juice and broth in same skillet; cook over high heat until reduced by half. Stir into roasting pan, scraping up brown bits. Stir in reserved 1/2 cup fruit mixture.

Slice roast crosswise into 8 (3/4-inch-wide) slices, removing twine as roast is cut. Serve with sauce. Garnish with fresh thyme.
