Apricot-Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. + standing


8 servings

A nice alternative for a special dinner during the yuletide season or any other time of year, this pork roast gets its fruity flavor and lovely golden color from apricots. I serve it often to guests.


  • 1 bone-in pork loin roast (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 2 cups apricot nectar
  • 4 teaspoons cider vinegar


  1. Sprinkle roast with salt and pepper. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch and mustard. Stir in apricot nectar and vinegar until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Spoon 1/2 cup glaze over roast. Bake 20 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining glaze.
