Easy Ginger Apple Roasted Pork

This is a new recipe for our family, and was also an instant favorite!  I found this one on Allrecipes.com where it earned nearly 5 stars by 325 reviewers.  The original recipe title was Easy Roasted Pork, but I felt the flavors were bold enough to earn a place in the title.  It’s a sweet one!  (Also, this recipe was specifically made in a Reynolds oven bag, as written, but a roaster, dutch oven or even a slow cooker could work successfully!)

2-3 lbs boneless pork loin roast
1/4 c water  
1/2 c packed light brown sugar*
1/4 c cinnamon applesauce
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger

Also used

Reynolds Oven Bag (Lg.)
1 T Flour*

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 
  2. Open the Oven bag and spoon in the flour.  Shake vigorously to coat the bag.  Place the bag into your baking dish. 
  3. Place the pork roast inside the oven bag and pour water around the roast.  
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, applesauce, and ground ginger.  Pour the mixture over the roast.
  5. Following the instructions for the Oven Bag, use the nylon tie to close the bag and tuck the ends of the bag into the pan.  
  6. Cut six 1/2″ slits in the top of the bag for steam to escape.  
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours or until internal temp. has reached 160 degrees f.
Served with steamed green beans and sweet potato fries
*This originally called for 3/4c brown sugar, but I felt that a 1/2 cup was plenty.
*for a gluten-free version, leave out the flour.  I’ve accidentally left it out a few times and the oven bag worked just fine without it. =)
