“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!”

Directions

  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.

There is an obvious error in this recipe that has been noted by many other reviewers that has to be mentioned. You would not cook a pork tenderloin for 3 hours as stated. They need about 20-30 minutes per pound. If you take this into consideration, this recipe is really good. I followed the recipe as directed except I only baked it for about 1/2 hour, then poured off about 1/2 of the apple juice and then covered the meat with the apple butter mixture and baked about another 45 minutes to an hour at the most. After it was done, I sliced the meat, plated it and drizzled just a bit of the cooking sauce over it. The meat picks up so much of the flavor. Everyone just loved it. I served it with Cheesy Mashed Potatoes and acorn squash.

This was really good! My husband and our dinner guest both loved this dish, as did I. The apple butter and the spice complemented the pork nicely....pork seems to beg for fruit. ***One note I will make about this recipe....The cooking time indicates that the recipe is actually for a boneless pork *loin*, not a pork *tenderloin*. I work in a meat market and people refer to pork *loins* as *tenderloins* quite frequently. They are actually two different cuts of meat, the *LOIN* is from outside the curve of the rib bone and the *tenderloin* is from the inside of the curve of the rib bone. A pork *loin* when sliced will yield slices that are roughly 3" by 5". A pork *tenderloin* will yield slices slightly larger in diameter than a silver dollar. A whole pork *tenderloin* will cook in 35-40 minutes at 350 degrees. If you cooked a *tenderloin* for the time stated in the recipe you'd wind up with a weapon, not a roast. Sorry to sound so preachy...this is a wonderful recipe!

This was fabulous! I put a 2.5 pound roast in the crock pot and then dumped all the other ingredients on top. An hour before it was ready, I added a cornstarch/water mix that made a great, thick gravy (to me, it made the dish). After 6 hours on high, I needed a spoon to get the loin out of the pot because it was fall-apart tender!
