Roasted Pork with Apple Cranberry Sauce

From Natalie:

Krisann made this dish for Bill and I a few years ago and it was fabulous!  She shared the recipe so I could make it for our celebration.  I was surprised that it was so easy because it really comes out delicious and the presentation is quite impressive.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless pork roast (This recipe calls for a roast this size, however, I made a roast that was 5 lbs. so I tripled the recipe.)
  • 2 Red Delicious apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup of Craisins (dried cranberries)
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays)
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • Crazy salt
  • Ground pepper
  • Garlic powder

Put the roast in a roasting pan and coat with Crazy salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Cook at 325 degrees for 20 minutes per pound.  (Meat thermometer should read 165 degrees in the center.)

In a medium saucepan, add the apples, craisins, barbecue sauce, brown sugar and 1/4 cup water.  Bring to a boil.  Simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring often.  The sauce should be slightly thickened.

Put the pork on a serving platter.  Slice roast and pour sauce over the top.  Enjoy!

(This recipe was adapted from Weight Watchers Simply the Best cookbook)
