Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 3/4 cup orange juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon diced crystallized ginger, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 pounds, rolled
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 16 ounces whole cranberry sauce (canned)
  • 1 orange, peeled & sectioned

Preparation:

Cook almonds in butter in large skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Add onions and celery; cook until vegetables are tender crisp. Stir in rice, 1/2 cup orange juice, orange peel, 1 teaspoon ginger, and salt; set aside. Untie roast; spoon rice mixture lengthwise between loins. Retie roast securely with string at 2- to 3-inch intervals; place, fat side down, on rack in shallow roasting pan. Combine rosemary and pepper; sprinkle over roast. Insert meat thermometer, or use an instant read thermometer to check temperature while roasting. If using a regular meat thermometer, it should not be inserted into stuffing or fat. Bake at 325° for 1 1/2 hours. Combine cranberry sauce, remaining orange juice, remaining ginger, and orange in small saucepan; stir well. Simmer over medium heat 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Brush about 1/2 cup cranberry mixture over pork. Bake for 15 minutes longer, or until meat thermometer registers about 160° Let roast stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Remove string and slice roast. Serve with remaining cranberry sauce.
