One Version is Never Enough!

 We have plenty of pork roast recipes on our blog, but seriously, it just never gets old! Every version and combination of flavors is so why stick to just one?

Simply Roasted Pork


1/2 cup apricot preserves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (3 pound) boneless pork loin, trimmed
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 425 degrees f.

Place the preserved in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, and cook 10 minutes or until melted. Keep warm over low heat.

Combine salt, oregano, garlic powder, and pepper, rub evenly over pork. Place pork on a rack coated with cooking spray; place rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake at 425 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Brush 1/4 cup preserves evenly over pork. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Brush remaining preserves evenly over pork. Bake an additional 10 minutes, or until thermometer registers 155 degrees (slightly pink). Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Notes: This was such a good recipe. The recipe notes that you can substitute apple jelly for the apricot preserves to produce a slightly sweeter flavor.
