Herb Roasted Pork
Harris Teeter had pork roasts on sale, buy one get one free a few weeks ago. I can't pass up a good sale so of course I bought two. ;) I didn't have any particular recipe that I wanted to make with them so I started looking on the internet. I found a recipe that looked okay on allrecipes.com. I wasn't thinking that I would put this recipe on my blog so I didn't take any pictures in the beginning. But this was sooooo gooood!!!! I accidentally over cooked it and it was STILL DELICIOUS! Definitely a winner with this recipe! :)
I changed the recipe a little bit. My changes are below.
1 tablespoon rubbed sage
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 (5 pound) boneless pork roast or loin (I used a roast)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a bowl, combine sage, salt, pepper, and garlic. Rub thoroughly all over pork. Place pork in an uncovered roasting pan on the middle oven rack. Bake in the preheated oven approximately 3 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches at least 150 degrees depending upon your desired doneness.
Meanwhile, place sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, water, and soy sauce in a small saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to bubble and thicken slightly.
Pour glaze over pork slices and serve.
