~A Recipe For The Best Pork Roast Ever~

The only thing I had defrosted for dinner yesterday was a boneless pork roast. Since I do not have many roast recipes I decided to browse through some recipes at www.allrecipes.com. I found this recipe titled: Easy Roasted Pork. If you like applesauce and pork you will looooove this recipe!pork roast   Here is the original recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 pounds boneless pork loin roast

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly flour an oven bag.
  2. In a small bowl, blend brown sugar, applesauce, and ginger.
  3. Place pork roast in the prepared oven bag. Pour the brown sugar mixture over the roast. Seal bag, and cut several small slits in the top.
  4. Cook the roast 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature has reached 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I did modify the recipe slightly.  2/3 packed light brown sugar seemed like a lot to me so I used 1/3 of a cup.  It was perfect.  Also, I didn’t bother flouring the oven bag.  Since I didn’t have any cinnamon applesauce I used plain unsweetened and added a teaspoon of cinnamon. 

To go along with the roast I cubed some red potatoes and put them in a plastic bag with some olive oil and lawry’s seasoning.  After coating the potatoes I spread them out on a cookie sheet and sprinkled with dill and some paprika to add color.  Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

For a vege I heated up a sugar snap pea steamer bag.  Dinner was complete and very delicious.peapod
