Marinated Pork Roast

No recipe image available.An Asian-style sherried marinade imparts incredible flavor to this pork loin roast.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (2 1/2 to 3-pound) boned pork loin roast
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 ounce fresh gingerroot
3/4 cup dry sherry
3/4 cup soy sauce

Cooking Directions:

  1. Put the pork loin in a shallow pan, fat side up. Mix the mustard and thyme together. Rub into the fat.
  2. Using a food processor fitted with steel blade, drop the garlic and ginger root into the chute with the motor running. Chop finely; add sherry and soy sauce. Pulse machine a few times. Without a food processor, chop garlic finely and grate ginger root. Place in a pint container, add sherry and soy sauce, cover with lid and shake to combine ingredients
  3. Pour the marinade over the meat. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 but preferably 12 hours, turning meat 2 to 3 times.
  4. Remove the meat from marinade. Strain marinade into a small sauce pan. Save the strained solids for addition to the meat in the roasting pan. Heat the liquid to boiling, skimming as necessary. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Place meat (fat side up) and reserved strained solids in a shallow pan. Roast in a preheated 325°F (160°C) oven to an internal temperature 150°F (65°C).
  6. Cover meat and pan securely and keep in a warm place for 30 minutes. Add pan juices which accumulate to marinade. Boil down to thicken, removing fat from the surface.
  7. Slice roast thinly. Move sliced roast to heated platter and pour sauce over meat.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
