Pork Roast Topped With Applesauce

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!
