This is the best pork recipe I’ve ever made. In fact, it’s so good, it’s restaurant-worthy! If you want to try something new and delicious, then this recipe is for you. It’s not overly sweet so no worries about that.
The apple butter and brown sugar glaze add the perfect contrast of flavors and really adds a nice touch to the pork loin. I like to say it’s the perfect comfort food and perfect for any occasion.
- 1 (3-4 pound) boneless pork loin roast
- Garlic Powder - season to taste
- Italian Season - I like to add a few dashes
- Onion Powder - season to taste
- Salt and Pepper - season to taste
- 4 Cups of water
- Apple Butter Glaze
- 2 cups apple or orange juice
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 cups of Apple Butter
Preheat oven to 375
Season Pork Loin
Add Water to base and cook for one hour.
Remove roast and glaze
Return to oven and cook for at least another 2 hours - depending on the size of your roast so following cooking directions.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl
Using the leftover dripping from the pork loin add 3 cups of water and stir in a pan
Add 3 tablespoons of Gravy Master and mix well.
Add 1/2 cups of flour to thicken - make sure you mix flour with water and mix well before adding it to gravy.
Stir every minute or so to keep it from lumping
Below, you will find some pictures of the process. Warning – your mouth will crave a bite!
I started with a roast about 3-4 pounds – of course, you can choose the size that works best for you and your family.
Start out by seasoning well.
Kauffman’s Fruit Farm Apple Butter is one of my favorites but, I also love Smuckers Apple Butter too! We love it with pork – it’s the perfect pair. Once the roast is cooking, I start to prepare the glaze.
Prepping the glaze is mouth-watering!
Looking good already!
After you glaze the pork loin roast, be sure to add your water to the base of your pan – you’ll need the liquid for the delicious gravy! Oh, and don’t forget to keep adding water to the pan while roasting this way it keeps the roast nice and moist during cooking and you will need the leftovers for the gravy.
Now, you can see the delicious apple butter glaze on top which adds a level of crispness and a touch of sweetness to the pork.
Get that yummy gravy going!
A masterpiece! Perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Every slice is pure perfection! And that gravy! OMG – it has a gentle touch of sweetness to it.
Seasoned and ready to enjoy!
Any side dishes will pair perfectly with this pork loin roast. I chose sautéed spinach and a tomato and cucumber salad!
