I serve this roast often to family and friends...and someone at the table always asks for the recipe. To complete the meal, I make stir-fried green beans and a lightened-up version of twice-baked potatoes. —Edie Urso of Spokane, Washington


  • 3/4 cup sherry or apple juice
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 bone-in pork loin roast (5 pounds)
  • SAUCE:
  • 2/3 cup currant jelly
  • 1 tablespoon sherry or apple juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce


  1. In a bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients; mix well. Pour 1-1/4 cups marinade into a 2-gallon resealable plastic bag; add the pork roast. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from roast. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until a thermometer reads 160°, basting every 30 minutes with reserved marinade. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. In a small saucepan, combine sauce ingredients; bring to a boil over medium heat. Serve with the pork.
