Add the onions and warm at low heat until lightly browned .Deglaze pan with the wine and broth; add the thyme, honey, mustards and garlic. Place the pork on top of the onions; add the vegetables and tomatoes. Cover and cook in the oven for 90 minutes, then uncover and let cook for another 30 minutes. Turn the meat occasionally. Remove from oven; cover loosely and let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Slice the pork and serve with vegetables and the reduced cooking juice.
