boneless pork roast
packed brown sugar

Fantastic! I made in the crockpot (on low @ 2.5 to 3 hrs/lb). I poured the whole applesauce mixture recipe over the roast in the slow cooker; I didn't save any for serving. It was delish! I couldn't stop picking at it before serving! I wish I'd had enough applesauce on hand to make the mixture again for the table, but I just served the roast and poured the liquid from the crock over the roast and mashed potatoes, too. Delish! Thanks for a yummy new dish for my recipe box!
Good, not great, but not awful.
This was awesome. So juicy. I did it in the crockpot - I omitted the rub and just dumped the applesauce mixture over the top. I used a 4 lb pork loin and cooked it for about 6 hours on low. I served it with an apple chutney. Really good fall recipe.
I've made this recipe a few times and my family loves it! I place the roast in a slow cooker for approx 7-8 hrs, double the applesauce mixture, throw in some carrots and potatoes, and fill with about 1/4 a pitcher of apple juice. It's great and tastes even better as leftovers!
Best pork recipe i have EVER tried. I used a 3-pound roast and put potatoes and carrots around it, added a little bit of water and covered it with foil. 3 hours later it was done -- moist!!!!! The sauce really makes this dish. Serve the sauce PIPING hot.
Yummy!!! The next time that I make it I will double the applesauce mixture - I really liked the sauce. Thank you for sharing!!
This was a great recipe. I just mixed up the ingredients and added a few more spices, like Emerils Essence and a little apple juice and threw it all in the crock pot. Pouring the apple sauce mixture over the top. My son asked what was on top. I was hesitant to tell him because I know he doesn't like apple sauce. However, he thought it was fantastic and had 3 helpings!! Next time I might add some cinnamon, or apples.
Wow! It makes my mouth water just thinking about it! I doubled the sauce mixture. It is the perfect accompaniment to the pork roast. I used a 5 lb boston butt roast and cooked it in the crock pot overnight. Scrumptous!
