For something a little different I thought I’d post a recipe. Its actually good for at least two meals depending on the size of the roast and how many people you’re feeding.
Fresh pork roast, I usually buy a roast that’s about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds. I spear it several times with a fork, then I combine the following:
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar (pack it good)
1 cup applesauce and 2 apples peeled, cored and sliced chunky
Pour the mixture over the roast in a baking dish and cover. Bake for 30-40 minutes, if you live below 3500 feet altitude uncover the roast and continue baking until done to your liking. If you live above 3500 feet, I suggest leaving the roast covered until done to your liking otherwise the sauce around the roast may caramelize. Serve with your favorite side dishes.
Now for the left overs. Take the remaining pork cut in thick slices or medium sized chunks. Pour in one can of chicken broth and one can of water. Let the roast cook at a rough simmer (slow easy boil) until the liquid is almost cooked away and the meat is falling apart. Then add your favorite barbeque sauce and you have home made pulled pork sandwiches.
