Pork Roast with Applesauce

| | | |

Crock-pot herb rubbed pork roast with homemade applesauce! It's a hearty one-pot dinner! Hello and happy Monday! It’s time for Main Dish Monday again! And today I’m talking about pork, crock-pot pork roast with applesauce to be exact! This is a great recipe to ‘piggy back’ on my applesauce recipe too (did you catch that, pork and piggyback?! Haha, so funny!).

This is a great weeknight meal because it requires only a few ingredients and very little attention (love, love, love it!). It also happens to be one of my favorites because it can be used for a pork sirloin tip roast or pork tenderloin and either way, it’s knock your socks off good!

Crock-pot herb rubbed pork roast with homemade applesauce! It's a hearty one-pot dinner! Like most crockpot recipes, this is super simple to prepare. You place the roast on top of a chopped onion in the crockpot, cover with the rub, add the chicken stock and balsamic vinegar, cover with applesauce and let it do its thing!

After about 6 hours, you end up with an incredibly moist and tender pork roast (or tenderloin) that’s perfectly complimented by the sweet, slightly tangy applesauce. I usually serve this with roasted red potatoes and a vegetable of choice, but it’s very versatile! It’s a family friendly, very hearty meal.
