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!).

Crock-pot herb rubbed pork roast with homemade applesauce! It's a hearty one-pot dinner!

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!

For an Italian version, try this Porketta roast – it’s so flavorful!

How to Make This Roast

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!

  1. In a small bowl, mix spices for the rub.
  2. Chop onion and place in the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Place the roast on top of the onion and cover with rub.
  4. Mix chicken broth and balsamic vinegar and pour in the bottom of the crockpot.
  5. Cover roast and rub with applesauce.
  6. Cook on low for 6 hours.

And, 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.
