not only was this so much fun to cook, i got to play with my injector- but the ingredients made a great roasted tenderloin! when it was done and i opened the oven the aroma of apples and cloves just reminded me of autumn! anyway, it was very juicy and tasty and i'll be making this again.

All in all a pretty good dish. The apple butter gave a nice taste to the meat without being overwhelming. Nice fall recipe!!

thank you for this recipe. I added cut up apples in the dish with the pork. Both turned out great. My whole family loved the flavor of the pork. very easy! I did cook it a little longer because my husband likes his meat well, well done!!!! It was still moist though! thanks

This has got to be one of the best pork recipes I have ever cooked! I am not a huge fan of pork, but this is one I cannot get enough of when I make. We have even used it to serve at our daughter's birthday party. Every time I make it, everyone raves. It is just so yummy and it smells wonderful! I don't have a meat injector, so I just poke some holes in the meat. Tastes perfect!!!! Thank you for submitting a true keeper!

This is delicious! The only change I made was that I had to use a bigger roast. I had a hard time finding a 1 1/2 lb roast. I use a 3 1/2 lbs roast. I just doubled everything including the time. It did need to go a bit longer then 40 minutes after I put the apple butter mixture on top. I believe I went 30 to 40 minutes longer to reach 145º! But that being my fault for buying a bigger roast. Still it was delicious, very easy to make. I let the apple juice soak into the roast for 2 hours chilled. We used the extra apple butter mixture that fell into the pan to spread over the slices. Yummy!! I will be making this recipe many, many times!!

I have served this at multiple parties and have begun to have it requested. Great and simple. I do recommend brining the pork before hand to make it extra juicy.

Great fall dinner! I served with roasted sweet potatoes with a ginger maple topping. The meat was so tender and the aroma through the house was wonderful. Very easy as well.
