Applesauce Teriyaki Pork Loin {a favorite}

I am always looking for new recipes to add as staples into our recipe circulation.  I had a pork loin in the freezer (actually, a 2-pack) and wanted to cook it for dinner, but wanted something different than our normal pork loin.  I found a recipe for applesauce pork loin, and tweaked it a bit for our tastes (read: added flavor!)

1 hour, 30 minutes

Number of servings: 6

See Detailed Nutrition Info on

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast 2-3 pounds, or 2 small pork loins
  • pink salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons (expeller pressed) coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1-2 tablespoons of Teriyaki sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

Instructions

  1. salt and pepper each side of pork loin to taste (I am generous here)
  2. brown each side in oil using large skillet, over medium heat
  3. mix all other ingredients in a bowl
  4. place pork loin(s) in a baking dish, or on roast pan
  5. using spoon, ladle applesauce mixture over pork loin(s)
  6. **note** I reserve some applesauce mixture to glaze the pork after it comes out of the oven. You don't have to do this.

I usually serve this with mashed potatoes and salad, or roasted veggies and salad.  My family devours it!  As a matter of fact … it was so delicious I forgot to take an “after” photo before they ate it all, so I had to use a stock photo.  (sorry about that)

I would love to hear your favorite pork recipe, tell me about it in the comments!
