A perfect solution for your holiday entertaining is a nice roast. I love pork roast it’s easy, festive and once you pull it out of the oven, you can cover with foil to rest and keep warm while you heat up a few of your side dishes to finish your meal preparation. Using oranges and pomegranates completes the festive flavors of this dish.
From by the bay wishing you a perfect roast food memory this holiday season!
Pomegranate Glazed Pork Roast
- 3/4 cup pomegranate molasses
- 3 tablespoons orange blossom honey
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
- One 5 1/2-pound pork rib roast, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Garnish with pomegranates, oranges and sprigs of rosemary
Mix the molasses, honey, garlic, dry mustard and rosemary to make a glaze. Rub the pork with the olive oil , season with sea salt and pepper, and roast in a 500° oven for 25 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375° and roast for 20 minutes. Brush the roast with the glaze and cook for 25 minutes or until the center reaches 155°; brush with glaze again 10 minutes before it’s done. Let the roast stand for 15 minutes, then carve and serve with the pan juices mixed with the remaining glaze.
