Bourbon Apple Pork Roast

This is a recipe that I found online requiring LOTS of ingredients. I don't like those kind of recipes ;)  That is why I love Tastefully Simple. The original recipe called for vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, garlic cloves, salt and black pepper--these are the things that I eliminated and subbed in TS products. This was FANTABULOUS.  Easily something that we would've paid $18-$20 for in a restaurant and  I fed my family of four under that amount :)

Ingredients:

2-3lb Pork Roast
3/4 Cup Apple Sauce
1/3 Cup Bayou Bourbon Glaze
1 TBSP Flour
1/2 tsp Seasoned Salt
1/2 tsp Garlic Garlic
1/4 tsp sugar

Directions: 

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Stir together applesauce, and Bayou Bourbon Glaze; refrigerate half of the applesauce mixture and set aside remaining applesauce mixture. Combine flour, salt, sugar, Garlic Garlic  and Seasoned Salt in another small bowl.  Rub flour mixture evenly over entire surface of pork. Place pork on rack in shallow roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, until internal temperature is 140 degrees F. Spoon reserved applesauce mixture over roast. Roast until the internal temperature is 145 degrees F (63 degrees C)., 1 to 1 1/2 hours total cooking time (about 18-20 minutes per pound). Transfer roast to serving platter; cover with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing. Heat chilled applesauce mixture in small saucepan until boiling; boil for 1 minute. Spoon heated applesauce mixture over pork slices.
