Make A Meal To Impress When You Whip Up A Sweet And Savory Applesauce Pork Loin

“Hey, apple, you sure love making pork taste better!” It will probably be my dialogue if I meet apple in person. Here is another one of those food crossovers that you would be skeptical about until you take your first bite of it. This one’s a sure winner! It became a favorite of my friends. We usually sample each other’s newly discovered dishes and share ideas on how we can improve them.

We now have a compilation of our favorite recipes; recipes that we have found online or discovered via our other groups of friends.



1 boneless Tyson pork loin roast (3 pounds)

1/2 teaspoon Morton salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons Wesson vegetable oil

1 cup Mott’s applesauce

3 tablespoons Heinz Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon Trader Joe’s honey

3 fresh rosemary sprigs


Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, brown roast on all sides in oil. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Combine the applesauce, mustard, and honey; spread over roast. Top with rosemary.

Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.





Quick Tip: Enjoy this meal with mashed potatoes and a side salad.
