This is one of my go to recipes..requested often and loved by all who try it!! Its easy and yields GREAT results!!
This is my go-to recipe when it comes to roasting pork. All the different steps make for a very juicy, tasty pork roast.
delicious, juicy and moist. The mustard and the vinegar paired with the apple sauce, brown sugar, and cloves made a very delicious dish with contrasting flavors of sweet and sour. I served this dish with country potato pancakes. I think this is a dish that I shall make again and again. Just make sure to let your pork roast rest for several minutes so it retains its juiciness. This would be a great dish to impress your guests at a holiday dinner.
