Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite, and easiest, fall recipes for a pork roast topped with applesauce for dinner. It will make your whole house smell good.
- 2 lb. pork roast (serves my family of 6 this week with my college daughter home)
- 1/2 -1 tablespoon of ground cloves (You almost can’t sprinkle enough in our house…we like lots of flavor! But if your palette is milder, start with 1/2 tablespoon and work your way up from there.)
- 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 24 oz. jar of apple sauce
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Line baking dish with several layers of tin foil to keep the applesauce from ruining your baking dish. Grease tin foil with a tablespoon of olive oil or PAM.
- Place pork roast in dish and sprinkle with all dry ingredients.
- Pour entire jar of applesauce over the pork roast.
- Place pork roast on center rack of oven for about 90 minutes. Use meat thermometer to confirm roast is cooked through.
- Slice pork roast and serve with spoonfuls of applesauce over the meat as gravy. I typically add a twice baked potato and some brussel sprouts on the side and call it a meal. Enjoy!
