Mandarin Pork Roast Recipe

I've taught university-level English for more than 40 years, but cooking is my first love. I especially like to plan and serve elaborate meals for my friends. This spectacular roast is juicy and tender with delightful seasonings and a beautiful glaze. -Grady Walker, Tulsa, Oklahoma

"Mandarins were a waste of ingredient. Something in the glaze was way too strong but the time for cooking the roast was perfect."

"This recipe is wonderful, I've made it several times. I always use a pork loin (no bone). And, if you don't have mandarins, don't worry, it's just as good without them."

"Very tasty and easy to prepare. I did bake it covered for and hour and a half and it was not tender so I baked it uncovered for another hour before adding the oranges and sauce. It had a nice flavor."
