Reviews for Roast Pork with Apple Topping
"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!"
