Roast Pork with Pineapple Soy Sauce

Super easy.  I served it with a side of black beans andrice, affectionately referred to as “Moros y Cristianos” (Moors and Christians) in Latin America.

  • 1 ½ – 2 pound pork sirloin roast
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 garlic clove mashed
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a medium ceramic casserole dish with non-stick spray.  Place the pork roast in it and stick a meat thermometer in it.  Roast the pork for about ½ hour.  Combine remaining ingredients except cornstarch.  After one half hour, use a brush to baste the pineapple-soy mixture onto the roast every ten minutes.  When bottom of pan starts to brown, pour ½ cup water into the pan, scraping up the brown bits.  Keep roasting until the pork registers 160 degrees (still juicy at that stage and slightly pink) or 170 degrees for done.  Remove pork from the dish and put it on a cutting board to rest.  Put the ceramic dish on a burner on medium heat.  Combine the remaining pineapple soy mixture with the cornstarch and add it to the dish, scraping up the brown bits.  Stir constantly until sauce thickens.  Slice pork and top with sauce.  Makes 6 servings.
