Marinated Pork Loin Roast

Being a hog farmer's wife, I'm always trying recipes that promote the product. I recently ran across this recipe in a church cookbook. My family was delighted with the outstanding flavor.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. + marinating Bake: 1-1/2 hours
  • Makes
    10 servings


  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon each dried thyme, oregano and marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 pounds)


  • In a saucepan, combine all ingredients except pork. Bring to a boil over medium heat; remove from heat and cool completely. Pour 1 cup sauce into a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Refrigerate remaining sauce.
  • Drain pork, discarding marinade in bag. Transfer pork to a greased rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°. Bake for 1 to 1-1/4 hours longer or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with reserved sauce.

    This is a great recipe. full of flavor and it was very tender. I marinated it for 24 hours and cooked it four hours. The last two were only at 250 F. I did not have maple syrup so I subbed honey. Everyone thought it was the best ever. I had a 4 1/2 pound roast and 6 people cleaned it up. I bought a half of a pork roast FOR 1.89/LB WITH VERY LITTLE FAT! A Very cheap and tasty meal, cheaper than Hamburg and still lean.
