Glazed Pork with Strawberry Couscous
Glazed Pork with strawberry couscous:
2 tsp dried marjoram
1 tsp salt
1 tsp seasoned pepper
1 bone in pork loin roast ( 5lbs) * uhm.. well I just realized literally that it was suppose to literally be a roast haha.. I used a boneless pork loin, and it was fantastic, explains the little bit of left over glaze ;)
1/2 c strawberry jam
1/2 c orange juice, divided
1 can (14.5 oz) chicken broth
1 pkg. (10 oz) plain couscous
1 c fresh strawberries, chopped
1/4 c minced fresh mint
2 tsp grated orange peel
1. Line the bottom of a large shallow roasting pan with foil; set aside. Combine the marjoram, salt and pepper; rub over roast. Place in pan. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 1 hour.
2. Combine jam and 1/4 c orange juice; brush half over pork. Bake 20-30 minutes longer or until a meat thermometer reads 160, basting with remaining jam mixture every 10 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring brother to a boil. Stir in couscous. Cover and remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork; stir in the strawberries, mint , orange peel and remaining orange juice. Serve with pork.
