Bone in Pork roast with brown sugar and maraschino cherries. Garlic adds just the right twist. This comes out tender and juicy. Cooking in a oven bag its easy and quick to clean up. 'Pig out!' Hope you enjoy it.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 5 pounds bone-in pork roast
- 8 cloves garlic cloves, peeled and halved
- 1/4 cup water
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, with juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Rinse and pat dry the pork roast.
Cut deep slits all over the roast with a sharp knife to different depths. Press pieces of garlic into the slits. In a small bowl, mix together the water, brown sugar, and the maraschino cherries with their juice. Place the roast in an oven bag, and pour the cherry mixture over. Seal the bag, and place in a roasting pan.
Bake for 3 hours in the preheated oven, or until the internal temperature of the roast is at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Remove from bag to a serving plate, and baste with the juices. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving and serving.
