- 1 cup peach preserves
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 boneless pork loin roast (about 3 pounds)
- Salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Gather the ingredients.
In a medium saucepan, combine the peach preserves, honey, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C/Gas 4. Line a 13-by-9-by-2-inch baking pan with foil.
Sprinkle the pork loin all over with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Place the roast, in the prepared pan, fat side up. Roast for 1 hour.
Brush the roast all over with the peach glaze mixture. Continue roasting for about 30 to 40 minutes, brushing with glaze frequently.
Let the roast rest for 10 minutes, then slice and serve with the pan juices.
Check the temperature of your pork tenderloin with an instant-read thermometer. It should read at least 145 F/62.8 C when inserted in the center of the roast.
- Your pork tenderloin will continue to cook even after it has been taken out of the oven. Take it out of the oven when the internal temperature reaches 135 F to 145 F, and let it rest the 10 minutes. It should reach the proper temperature of 145 F.
- Feel free to substitute with apricot preserves or pineapple preserves in place of the peach preserves.
How to Store
- Any leftovers of your cooked pork tenderloin roast can be placed in airtight containers or a plastic bag and kept in the refrigerator for three to four days.
- It can also be frozen in a freezer-safe bag or container for two to three months.
