This makes for a delicious Sunday dinner. I serve it with rice (sometimes mashed potatoes, though) and broccoli.

I had plans on making this for our Christmas dinner, but we had been given a lovely ham on the bone so we ate that instead. Decided to make this delicious pork recipe today for a family Sunday roast. I used a shoulder roast (bone in) and the meat was the most tender of any I have ever made. Plenty left for sandwiches tomorrow too, which is a bonus! Thanks for posting and to anyone wanting a delicious roast give this one a go!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. You'll need 2 heavy-duty large plastic bags; place one inside the other, then place roast inside inner bag.
  2. In bowl, combine all other roast ingredients and mix well; pour over the roast in the bag.
  3. Press out any air, tie it up with a twist-tie or elastic band, and place in a large bowl and stash in your fridge.
  4. Marinate for about 6 hours, occasionally squishing bag to make sure all the meat gets contact with the marinade; you can get away with 3 to 4 hours though.
  5. Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
  6. Remove roast from bag, discarding marinade.
  7. Place roast on a rack in a roasting pan and roast until pork reaches internal temp of 170F (75C) and juice is no longer pink-- about 3 hours.
  8. Let stand for about 15 minutes before carving to allow juices to settle back into meat.
  9. To make the sauce, combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until jelly melts.
  10. Stir well and serve with pork.
