Glazed Pork with Strawberry Couscous Recipe

Glazed Pork with Strawberry Couscous Recipe

This is a delicious dish I often serve guests. I typically save it for when mint and strawberries are plentiful in my garden. Bernice V. Janowski, Stevens Point, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. + standing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons dried marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
  • 1 bone-in pork loin roast (5 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup seedless strawberry jam
  • 1/2 cup orange juice, divided
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1 package (10 ounces) plain couscous
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, quartered
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh mint
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel

Directions

  • 1. Line the bottom of a large shallow roasting pan with foil; set aside. Combine the marjoram, salt and pepper; rub over roast. Place in pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour.
  • 2. Combine jam and 1/4 cup orange juice; brush half over pork. Bake 20-30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160°, basting with remaining jam mixture every 10 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Stir in couscous. Cover and remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork; stir in the strawberries, mint, orange peel and remaining orange juice. Serve with pork. Yield: 10 servings.
