1 5-pound Smithfield Pork Loin Roast Pork Butt Roast – whatever that was.
2 cloves garlic slivered
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons dried or fresh rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup chopped onions
1 cup plum preserves Plum Sauce from Publics in the Asian Aisle
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
3 drops Tabasco sauce Didn’t use
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Garlic salt to taste didn’t use or need
To make the sauce melt the butter in a saucepan; add the onions and saute until tender. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Moisten the roast with a damp paper towel to help hold the seasonings. In a small bowl stir together the garlic salt herbs and spices. With a sharp knife make 1/2 inch deep slits in the top of the roast. Press the seasonings mixture into the slits and rub the remainder over the entire roast. Place the roast in a roaster pan and pour 1/2 cup plum sauce over it. Cover and bake for 2 1/2 hours. Uncover and roast and baste it with additional plum sauce; bake for 30 minutes longer basting 2 or 3 times until the roast is nicely browned. Serve the remaining plum sauce on the side for dipping.
I served it with roast potatoes and roast veges (Butter Nut Squash, Sweet Potato, Carrot, Capsicum (red bell peppers), Egg Plant and fresh Garlic) and Asparagus fried lightly in Olive oil with Salt and Pepper.
