Christmas Pork Roast

Christmas Pork Roast

Steffamie

"This is a recipe I made up when my husband requested a 'roast that tastes like Christmas.' It's a savory-sweet pork roast with cranberries, apples, and cloves. You can add ground cloves to the glaze instead of using whole cloves."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place pork roast into a roasting pan; push whole cloves into the meat. Cover the roast with apple slices.
  3. Mash cranberry sauce in a bowl with a potato masher; stir chicken broth, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger into cranberries. Pour about half the cranberry mixture over the pork roast. Cover with a lid or a sheet of aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Pour remaining cranberry mixture over roast. Sprinkle orange zest over the cranberry sauce.
  5. Return to oven and roast until cranberry mixture forms a glaze and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meat reads at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 30 more minutes.

The cook time was a bit too long - I would suggest checking it at 45 minutes, especially if you do not have a thermometer to keep in the pork while in the oven.

This recipe was delicious. I used ground cloves instead of whole, but I should have used a little less of all of the spices. But even still, it was great. I will definitely make this next Christ...

Positively delectable! My whole house smelled amazing while this was in the oven!

Quick to prepare, then stick it in the oven! Smells and tastes great!

this was delicious. The aroma while baking is fantastic and the meat was so tender you almost don't need a knife. My husband said this is definitely a keeper.

Our new Christmas tradition!

I normally cook for a minimum of 25 people so, I'm always looking for a easy but exciting recipe. This recipe fits the bill! I was tempted to brown the roast first as a way to get some more flav...
