Sweet & Sour Marinated Pork Loin With Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Are you sick and tired of dry, bland Sunday dinners? Are you afraid to even prepare a roast out of fear that it will never be as juicy and tender as you would like it to be? Then it's time to stop being scared and try this succulent recipe!

You'll Need:

  • 4 lb pork loin
  • cooking twine

For the marinade:

  • ¾ cup honey
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup sweet chili sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  •  ¼ tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
  • 2 garlic coves, minced

For the potatoes:

  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 lbs small potatoes
  • 1 head of garlic
  • 2-3 rosemary sprigs
  • salt & pepper to taste

Here's How:

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Tie the cooking twine around the pork loin as shown in the video and place it in a roasting pan.

2. Prepare the marinade, pour it over the pork loin in the roasting pan, and marinate for 30 minutes. Remove the pork loin from the roasting pan and briefly fry it on all sides in a large pan over medium heat. Pour the marinade over the pork loin in the pan and let simmer for about 20 minutes, constantly pouring the sauce over the pork loin so it doesn't dry out. Place the pork loin and marinade back in the roasting pan, put it in the oven, and cook for 20 minutes, again constantly bathing the meat with the marinade.

3. Cut the potatoes in half and fry them in hot oil, together with rosemary and garlic, until golden brown.

4. Blot the grease from the roasted potatoes and season them with salt and pepper.

5. Puree the remaining marinade into a sauce and serve with the sweet and sour pork loin and roasted potatoes.
