Delicious Glazed Pork Roast For Dinner?

Recipe type: Main Author: Butchers Best Market Prep time: 15 mins Total time: 15 mins Serves: 8

4 to 5 lb pork loin roast
2/3 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
2 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
2 tblspn. cornstarch
2 c. apricot nectar
4 tsp. cider vinegar

Rub roast well with salt and pepper; score fat on roast in a diamond pattern. Place roast, fat side up, on a rack in an open roasting pan. Insert meat thermometer into the center of roast so it does not touch bone or rest in fat. Roast meat in a slow to moderate oven at 325 to 350 until the meat thermometer indicates an internal temperature of 170 degrees. Times vary with type of loin cut; center loin roast, roast about 30 to 35 minutes per pound; blad loin or sirloin roast, about 40 to 45 minutes per pound. About 1/2 hour before roast is done, mix brown sugar, mustard and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in apricot nectar and cider vinegar. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Remove roast from oven and spoon about 1/2 c. glaze over it (reserve rest of glaze). Replace meat in oven until done. Remove roast from oven 20 minutes before serving for easier carving.
