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!

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!
