Ingredients

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup sherry or vegetable broth, divided
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 boneless whole pork loin roast (3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Nutritional Facts

3 ounces cooked pork with 5 teaspoons sauce equals 229 calories, 8 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 55 mg cholesterol, 51 mg sodium, 15 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 22 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1 starch, 1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, preserves, 2 tablespoons sherry, lemon juice, oil, curry, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and pepper. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Set aside 1 cup remaining marinade for sauce; cover and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade; place pork on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade. Transfer to a serving platter. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch with the remaining sherry and 1 cup marinade. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with roast. Yield: 12 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2011

I marinated the pork for 2 days only because that's how our schedules worked. I couldn't find a 3 lb. loin so did 2 1 lb. loins together for about 45 min.. It was delicious! VERY tender! The thickened leftover sauce was great. Will definitely make again. Easy and I will think twice about buying a pre-marinated loin again.

My dad likes anything apricot, so I had to try this. I used just a fraction of the curry the recipe called for, as we're not huge fans of that flavor. It's a keeper! I'll be making this again when dad comes for a visit. A very elegant presentation for minimal effort -- the best kind of recipe!
