Raspberry Mustard Glazed Pork Roast

Posted December 19th, 2011 in Main Dishes, Recipe, Side Dishes


1 cup red wine

¼ cup orange juice

2 tsp red wine vinegar

4 large cloves of garlic-smashed

1 tbs. whole grain mustard

2 tsp red pepper flakes


1 2 ½ pound boneless pork loin roast-tied

5 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced in half

Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper


Raspberry Mustard Glaze:

1 ½ cups smoky tomato based barbecue sauce

1 can Oregon Fruit Raspberries, drained (save the syrup for Raspberry Cosmos)

1 tbs. orange zest

¼ cup fresh squeezed orange juice

¼ cup whole-grain mustard

1 tsp. fresh grated ginger

½ tsp sea salt

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

For the marinade, combine all ingredients in a medium-size bowl, stir and set aside.

For the pork roast, make 8-10 slits in the flesh of the roast with a sharp paring knife and insert the garlic slices, then sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper and pat in place. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over pork. Seal bag and refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.

For the glaze, combine all ingredients in a medium-size bowl.  Divide in half using one half for basting and reserving one to serve as a sauce. Preheat oven to 350degrees.  Remove pork from the marinade and place in a roasting pan. Brush with some of the glaze. Roast, uncovered, for 90 minutes basting occasionally until a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees. Let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.  Serve each slice with a spoonful of sauce.
