Pork loin roasts go on sale around me quite often, so I'm always looking for ways to prepare and serve them. Love this glaze and sauce. The sauce is so flavorful with the pan drippings added!

How to Make Glazed Pork Roast


  1. Score the fat on the pork roast in a diamond pattern. Rub salt and pepper into the scored slits and over the rest of the roast. Place the roast, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the roast., making sure it does not touch bone or fat. Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
  2. Combine the apricot nectar and the remaining ingredients in a saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat. Reserve 1/2 cup apricot mixture for sauce.
  3. Baste the roast with the remaining apricot mixture. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until the thermometer registers 160°. Remove the roast to a serving platter, reserving 3 tablespoons pan drippings. Set the roast aside, and keep warm.
  4. Combine the reserved apricot mixture and the pan drippings in a medium saucepan; stir well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated. Serve the roast with the sauce.
