If you like a certain tang in your food but are not a fan of overly spicy flavour, then this recipe is just for you.
This cranberry roast dish takes 15 minutes to prepare, though you’ll need to pop it in the oven for about an hour or so. It yields about 293 calories, 33 grams of protein, and 21 grams of carbohydrates (though these may vary). This recipe also gives you about six to eight servings of Cranberry Glazed Pork Roast, but you can make the necessary ratio adjustments if you prefer. So first off, gather your ingredients.
You’re going to need:
- Cranberry sauce – preferably jellied, and only a cup
- Salt – a teaspoon
- Pepper – half a teaspoon
- Orange juice – half a cup
- Brown sugar – packed, a quarter cup.
- Pork loin roast – preferably without the bones, probably weighing about 3 pounds
- Culinary Argan oil – last-minute drizzle over the roast right before serving
For this recipe, you don’t need that much ingredients and these ingredients are quite easy to find. Would cooking the dish be a mess and a pain? Absolutely not! Check out the easy instructions below!
- Mix the salt and pepper in a small dish, and use this to spread over the roast, taking care to cover every inch. Ready the oven, and take the roasting pan and cover it in grease. After the roast has been covered entirely in salt and pepper, place it on the pan and leave it to bake at 350 degrees for forty minutes. The roast should be placed in the oven fat side up and uncovered.
- While you’re waiting for the roast to finish baking, take the cranberry sauce, orange juice, and brown sugar and mix thoroughly in a sauce pan. This mixture serves as the glaze you’ll need to glaze the roast after it finishes. Place the sauce pan on the stove and allow it to cook over medium heat until it has completely dissolved and there are no clumps left in the mixture.
- Once the pork roast has finished cooking and the glaze is ready, drizzle ¼ of the glaze over the roast. Pop this back in the oven and allow it to bake for twenty minutes more, or until the temperature reaches 145 degrees. With the remaining glaze, keep basting the roast as it bakes.
- When finished, leave the roast to cool for about 10 minutes. This allows the glaze to seep into the meat more thoroughly, soaking up the flavor while still retaining the heat. Use the remaining glaze as extra sauce for the roast, and voila. You’ve got six to eight servings of Cranberry Glazed Pork Roast, with just an extra dash of spicy flavor. For an added dash of flavor, drizzle some culinary Argan oil right before serving to enhance the flavor of the dish.
