Peach Glazed Pork Roast is marinated in a soy-based marinade and then roasted and topped with a sweet peach glaze. So flavorful!
You’ll need a 3 to 4-pound boneless pork loin for this recipe. I love to roast pork loins. Scroll down for more pork loin recipes. They are fairly lean, are easy to cook, and feed a large family. Pork loins don’t have a ton of flavor on their own so it is important to really add lots of flavor.
For maximum flavor, the pork is first marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, dry sherry, garlic, thyme, dry mustard, white pepper, and just a little cinnamon. You want to let it marinate at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.
Next, the pork gets roasted in a 325 degree oven. Save the marinade because it will be used to make the glaze.
Once the roast is nearly done, it gets brushed with glaze. Extra glaze can be served with the pork as a sauce.
