Roasted Pork with Apple Cranberry Sauce
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.
- 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!
