  • 1 boneless rolled pork loin roast (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place roast on a rack in a shallow roasting pan, fat side up. Roast 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine brown sugar, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in water until smooth. Stir in tomato sauce, vinegar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.
  3. Brush roast with some of the sauce. Roast 15-30 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145°, brushing occasionally with more sauce. Remove roast from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining sauce. Yield: 10 servings.
