Cranberry-Onion Pork Roast
Who says cranberries are just for the fall and winter holidays? This grilled roast has a smoky sweet tang from the cranberry basting sauce.
2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1 (16-ounce) can whole cranberry sauce
1 (1-ounce) package dried onion soup mix
- Season roast with salt and pepper; place over indirect heat on grill.
- Stir together cranberry sauce and onion soup mix and heat, covered, in microwave until hot (about one minute).
- Baste roast with cranberry mixture every 10 minutes until roast is done (internal temperature with a meat thermometer is 155°F to 160°F | approximately 70°C), about 30 to 45 minutes; let roast rest about 5-8 minutes before slicing to serve.
- Heat any leftover basting mixture to boiling, stir and boil for 5 minutes and serve alongside roast.
Makes 6 servings.
