Apple & Spice Pork Roast

Serves: 6-8

2 lb. pork roast
1 c. applesauce
1/3 c. brown sugar
2 t. vinegar
1 t. yellow mustard
1/8 t. ground cloves
1 T. flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. sugar
1/8 t. garlic powder
1/8 t. pepper

Stir together applesauce, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and cloves in a small bowl; refrigerate half of the applesauce mixture. In another small bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, garlic powder and pepper. Rub flour mixture over entire surface of roast. Place pork in roasting pan. Pour non-refrigerated applesauce mixture over roast. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees. Remove from oven and cover. Let rest until temperature reaches 160 degrees. Heat chilled applesauce mixture in small saucepan until boiling; boil for 1 minute. Serve with sliced pork.

Tips: This pork roast was so easy to put together and had a wonderful flavor, especially for the fall or winter. Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you away, you probably have most of them in your pantry already. We served these with mashed potatoes and a can of green beans and dinner was ready. I recommend unsweetened applesauce with this recipe (that's what I used) or if you already have sweetened applesauce maybe leave out the extra sugar so it isn't too sweet.
