Glazed Pork Loin Roast
Marmalade and mustard combine to give this roast its sweet and tangy coating. Garlic inserted below the surface of the meat permeates more deeply for a better distributed flavor.
2 1/2 pounds boneless pork roast
1 clove garlic, peeled and quartered lengthwise
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon orange marmalade
1 teaspoon brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried thyme
- Cut 4 slits into the fat side of the roast and insert a garlic piece into each slit. Sprinkle roast with salt.
- In a bowl mix together marmalade, mustard and thyme; spread evenly over roast. Place in an oven roasting bag and then into a microwave-safe baking dish. Microwave on MEDIUM for 10 minutes.
- Turn roast over and microwave until done or internal temperature registers 170°F (75°C) on a meat thermometer, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
Makes 10 servings.
