Applesauce Pork Roast

The local grocery store often has pork loins on sale.  Whole pork loins.  The whole loin comes packaged in this large 9-ish lb. package that looks like it's almost a yard long.  I've seen a number of people see its size and then just walk away, daunted.  What they don't know is that the meat department at the store will butcher the loin up for you however you like, roasts, chops, whatever, at no additional cost.  So I usually walk out of there with three roasts or maybe two roasts and a pkg of chops, which will all fit nicely in my freezer.

This recipe for pork roast is so easy, it's amazing I haven't shared it sooner.  It literally takes a minute to prepare. I might suggest removing the pork from the slow cooker and letting it sit for a few minutes before slicing, so that it retains it's juiciness.  I like to serve it with pork flavored stuffing (the instant kind!) and green beans.

Applesauce Pork Roast

1 2-3 lb. pork loin roast, trimmed of excess fat (leave a little on there for flavor, but you don't need a thick pad of fat like you would for an oven roast.)
1 24 oz. jar unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

1.  Place roast in slow cooker.
2.  Pour applesauce over pork.
3.  Sprinkle brown sugar, then cinnamon on top.
4.  Cover and cook on low approx. 8 hours.
