Festive Cranberry-Glazed Pork Roast Recipe

My family loves pork prepared in this festive way. You'll find that this succulent roast, with its tangy ruby glaze, is an entree that you, too, will be proud to serve at the holidays year after year.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-3/4 hours + standing YIELD:12-14 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork shoulder butt roast (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  • 12 small whole onions
  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. Place roast, fat side up, in a greased roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 45 minutes. Place onions around roast, cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine cranberry sauce, orange juice, cornstarch, orange peel, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Spoon 3/4 cup over roast and onions; set remaining sauce aside.
