"This is the best pork recipe I've ever made. This pork is seasoned with a spiced apple butter, and roasted in apple juice. If food can be warm and cozy, this is it--a great Sunday dish!"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season the pork loins with seasoning salt, and place them in a 9x13 inch baking dish or small roasting pan. Pour apple juice over the pork, and cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. While the pork is roasting, mix together the apple butter, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and cloves. Remove pork roasts from the oven, and spread with apple butter mixture.
  4. Cover, and return to the oven for 2 hours, or until fork-tender.


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

This recipe produced a very flavorful pork tenderloin. I used apple cider instead of juice, and a disposable roasting pan (easy clean up!). Based on the reviews, I cooked at a reduced temp of 30...

The whole family loved it. I wouldn't change one thing. I did try this recipe in a slow cooker and it was just a great as in the oven.

I love pork loin, and this was a great way to make it. I made the same amount of sauce, but only cooked one 2.6 lb piece of meat. I put the sauce on before I put the meat in the oven, rather t...
