Orange Glazed Pork Loin

Florida oranges make this recipe great!


  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or regular if cayenne too spicy
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast about 5 pounds
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup Florida orange juice
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Combine the first 5 ingredients to make a rub for the roast. Place fat side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour.
  • While roast is baking, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine Florida orange juice, brown sugar and mustard. In a small bowl, mix water and cornstarch until smooth. Add to orange juice mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir a couple minutes. Keep half the glaze for serving; brush part of the remaining glaze over roast.
  • Bake until a thermometer reads 145°, 20-40 minutes longer, brushing occasionally with glaze. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Reheat glaze; serve with roast.
