Cherry-Glazed Roast Pork Recipe

this tender roast looks elegant...yet it's easy to prepare. I use it as a year-round main dish for holidays and entertaining in general. The nicely spiced cherry glaze make a mouthwatering topping.—Beth Brandenburger, Rochester, Minnesota

"Good flavor, but I wish the sauce would have been thicker. Might skip the juice next time."

"This recipe was very good. However, my pork was no where near cooked after 50 minutes. It was way longer than that."
