Roast Pork in a Bag

(5 Votes)
1 Hr 5 Min

Some of us might think that oven bags are a modern invention, but foil cooking goes back a long time. Our recipe for Roast Pork in a Bag is a simple way to capture lots of juicy flavor and cook it into our foods.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (2½ pounds) boneless pork loin sirloin roast
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 oven bag (see Note)

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place roast in oven bag then place bag in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, applesauce, and ginger; mix well.
  4. Spoon over roast; seal bag then cut six 1-inch slits in top. Bake 55 to 60 minutes, or until little pink remains for medium-well, or no pink remains for well-done.
  5. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and water; mix well.
  6. In a medium saucepan, combine pan drippings from bag and cornstarch mixture. Cook over high heat 2 to 3 minutes, or until sauce begins to thicken, stirring constantly.
  7. Cut roast into thin slices and serve with sauce spooned over top.


Oven bags can be found in the paper goods/food wraps area of the supermarket near the aluminum foil and plastic wrap.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Haven't tried this recipe but have been cooking all my meat in bags since they were introduced. Less mess, meat tender and moist always good. Love pork thanks for saying maybe double the sauce. Helpful.

I made this yesterday and it was sonderful. The only thing I will do differently next time is made a double recipe of the sauce. It was so good that it didn't last long enough!

very good and easy to make.Taste wonderful I served this with boiled red baby Potatoes sprinkel with parsley and melted butter.

Do you still need to use the flour as instructed on the package?

I would... this is recommended to keep the bag from bursting
