If you need a recipe for a tasty pork loin roast, this one is a good choice. It's roasted to perfection and served with a tangy apricot nectar sauce. This makes a great meal with mashed potatoes and a side vegetable or salad, or serve with sweet potatoes and greens.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 55 minutes

Yield: Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 pork loin roast, about 4 to 5 pounds
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups apricot nectar
  • 2/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Preparation:

Score fat on roast in a diamond design. Rub salt and pepper over surface of the pork loin. Place roast, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of roast, making sure it does not touch fat or bone. Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Combine apricot nectar and remaining ingredients in a saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Reserve 1/2 cup apricot mixture for sauce. Baste roast with remaining apricot glaze mixture. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 160°. Remove roast to a serving platter, reserving 3 tablespoons drippings. Set roast aside, and keep warm.

Combine reserved apricot misture and drippings in a medium saucepan; stir well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce comes to a full boil. Serve roast with sauce.
Serves 6 to 8.
