  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup sherry or vegetable broth, divided
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, preserves, 2 tablespoons sherry, lemon juice, oil, curry, Worcestershire sauce, thyme and pepper. Pour 3/4 cup marinade into a large dish; add the pork. Turn to coat; cover and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Set aside 1 cup remaining marinade for sauce; cover and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the marinade for basting.
  2. Drain pork, discarding marinade; place pork on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until a thermometer reads 145°, 1 to 11/4 hours, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade. Transfer to a serving platter. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch with the remaining sherry and 1 cup marinade. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Serve with roast.
