  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season the pork loin with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown the pork loin on all sides in the hot oil, about 10 minutes total. Remove the pork loin from the pan, and set aside. Pour in the white wine, and bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the caramelized bits in the pan.
  3. Scatter the butternut squash and onion in the skillet and place the browned pork loin on top so they work as a roasting rack. Stir together the applesauce, mustard, soy sauce, sugar, and cinnamon. Pour over the pork loin, then cover the pan with a lid or a double layer of aluminum foil.
  4. Bake pork loin in preheated oven until it has reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C), about 1 hour. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

An excellent recipe as written. The flavors of the apple sauce, sugar and soy meld really well as it cooks and no 1 flavor stands out too much. I consider the original recipe a fairly "safe" dis...

Thumbs up on this one! I mixed the garlic powder and about tsp each s & p and rubbed into the loin before browning. Added water instead of wine. Put into 13x9 as I don't have oven safe pan and b...

This was great, I used a roast with a fair bit of marbling in it as that is my preference. Delish!

Wow, this was really good! I used leftover cranberry sauce instead of the applesauce and it came out great!
