I've also cooked this pork in a covered outdoor grill. Instead of pouring all the sauce over the pork (and into the coals), I spoon it on throughout the cooking.

Ingredients

  1. Check 1 4 1/2- to 5-pound boneless pork loin roast
  2. Check salt and pepper
  3. Check 1 10-ounce jar apricot preserves
  4. Check 1/4 cup bourbon or orange juice
  5. Check 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  6. Check 4 garlic cloves, peeled and minced

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 325° F.
  2. Place the pork in a roasting pan and rub with salt and pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the preserves with the bourbon, soy sauce, and garlic and pour over the meat. Cover and roast 30 minutes.
  4. Uncover and baste with the sauce and the juices that have collected in the roasting pan. Cover and continue cooking, basting every 20 minutes, for about 1 hour longer or until an instant-read thermometer registers 155° F.
  5. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes to finish cooking before carving. Serve with pan drippings.
