The cooking time for pork depends on the thickness of the meat; roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 155 degrees.

Barbecued Pork Loin

Source: Everyday Food, May/June 2003

Ingredients

  • 1 can tomato sauce, 14 1/2 ounces
  • 1 small onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons dark-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin, tied
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Make the barbecue sauce: In a medium bowl, stir together tomato sauce, 1/4 cup water, onion, garlic, sugar, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.

  2. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper over pork. In a medium ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Place pork in skillet, and sear on all sides until golden brown, about 8 minutes total. Remove from heat, pour off excess fat from skillet, and carefully pour some of the barbecue sauce over pork, covering completely.

  3. Transfer skillet to oven. Cook, basting every 15 minutes, until juices run clear, about 45 minutes; meat should register 155 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. Transfer pork to a cutting board; cover and let rest about 10 minutes, then slice thinly and serve with remaining barbecue sauce.

    This was really good. My kids actually asked for seconds of "this delicious meat"! I did have to add small amounts of water each time I basted as the drippings started scorching on the bottom but I will be making this one again.
