Orange marmalade is a great way to flavor pork and turn a simple roast into something special. Here is another way to use orange marmalade with pork. The marinade needs to be a paste so adjust the amount of liquid based on how thick the marmalade is. Homemade marmalade will work best.

Orange Marmalade Smeared Pork Roast

  • 5-6 lb pork tenderloin roast
  • 5 tbsp orange marmalade
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • Salt/pepper

Season pork with salt and pepper. Mix everything else together into a thick paste. On a large piece of plastic wrap spoon half the mixture on one end about 3 inches in. Place roast on top of marinade and then spoon remaining marinade on top of meat. Tightly wrap the meat up in the plastic wrap making sure the marinade is evenly pressed on all sides. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove from plastic and gently place roast on a rack in a roasting pan. Try to keep as much marinade stuck to the roast as possible. Add about 1 cup of water to the base of the pan. Bake in an oven at 350 degrees until done, about 1 1/2-2 hours. Let meat rest 20 minutes before slicing.
