“This recipe is so easy. It’s a favorite!” Cranberries lend a subtle sweet-tart undertone to this elegant and tender entree. Beth Brandenburger - Rochester, Minnesota


  • 1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 boneless rolled pork loin roast (4 pounds)


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce, apple juice, barbecue sauce and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Combine the cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into cranberry mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Set aside 1 cup sauce.
  2. Place roast in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour. Spoon a third of the remaining glaze over pork. Bake 20-30 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting twice. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved sauce.
