      Had this roast for our 'Sunday' roast dinner yesterday, delicious, the applesauce mixture gave it a lovely sweet topping. Took a little longer to cook than suggested but was worth it.

      This was very good and everyone is the family liked it. My husband did say the cloves were a little too strong, but since it did not list cloves in the ingredients list, only in the instructions, I had to guess at the amount. I used about 1/4 tsp. Also...I forgot to add the flour to the rub! Didn't seem to make a difference though. I did think it was a bit strange to have "prepared" mustard in a rub instead of mustard powder, but it worked out anyway. I used 2 - 2 lb. pork loins, so mine was done in less time. The sauce was thick, so I did not have to do anything to make a was more like a glaze. This is a different way to make pork loin, which is usually kind of boring :)

      I made this for dinner last week and it was wonderful. I used a pork tip roast instead of the loin roast. I also left out the clove, because I didnt have any. Only problem I found was that the mustard rub didnt spread too well for me so i just added a little water. Came out very moist and flavorful. Thanks for sharing
