"This is one of my personal favorites. Works well with ham too."
"I love this recipe and have shared it with friends. Easy and flavorful. I use homemade applesauce for the topping."
"This is now my favorite way to make pork roast too! The applesauce topping complements the pork perfectly. I just added about 3 tablespoons of flour to the sauce to thicken it so it doesn't slide off the roast so easily. Thanks, Virginia!"
