Applesauce Pork Tenderloin

This post contains affiliate links

This Applesauce Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorite recipes. I've been making it for years. I adapted it from a Motts Applesauce Recipe I found in a cookbook about recipes found on the backs of packages and labels. I usually make it in my favorite Dansk pan, which I have had for years.

pork loin roast ingredients


  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 to 1 t Mrs. Dash spice mix
  • 3/4 cup Cinnamon Apple Sauce
  • pork tenderloin


Applesauce Pork Tenderloin is a very easy recipe to make, with great flavor. Easy enough for every night dinner, flavorful enough for a special occasion. And it has a very short prep time. As with many recipes, I tend not to measure so feel free to adjust the measurements to your own liking.

Mix together the applesauce, garlic powder, and spice mix. You can use any spice mix your palate likes.

pork tenderloin ready to cook
In a baking pan (my favorite is the Dansk which I have had for years) sprayed well with cooking spray, place the raw pork tenderloin and cover it with the applesauce mixture.

If you want a more moist pork tenderloin and topping, cover with foil before baking.

It's OK if some of the applesauce mixture burns in the bottom of the pan.

And ready to serve for dinner!

The applesauce makes the meat very tender and provides a somewhat sweet and spicy coating.
