Come join us over at the Gluten Free Homemaker's blog for What's for Dinner Wednesday. A gluten free blog carnival to help fuel your what's for dinner brainstorm.
This last year I discovered a recipe for pork roast, a recipe that I was actually very unsure of trying. You see, I think my roasts should be savory, who ever heard of a sweet roast. Brown sugar, applesauce, cinnamon... PORK! It just couldn't taste right. However, I also like to try new preparations for old favorites. My husband loves a slightly sweet twist to things, so I decided to give it a go. I'm happy I did.
This has been adjusted from the original recipe, which was already gluten free. However I cut back on a few ingredients and changed the cooking method.
2 lb boneless pork roast
1 single serving all natural applesauce
Dash of cinnamon (more or less to taste)
1/2 cup light brown sugar (lightly packed)
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger (I use freshly grated)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
In a small bowl, mix applesauce, brown sugar, cinnamon, and ginger.
Place roast in a casserole dish, pour applesauce mixture over top of the roast and put the lid on the dish. Place in the oven for an hour (or until done when temped.)
