Roasted Pork with Cranberry Orange & Apple Chutney

My hubs is always on the road trying to take care of his family the best he can.

One of the drawbacks of not being home is missing many special occasions like birthdays…..even his own.

Since he missed his March 11th birthday we decided to make him special dinner last week when he got to spend two days with us.

My hubby is not picky when comes to food and especially my cooking, but he does have his favorite dishes.

Since it was his birthday dinner I decided to surprise him …..and…..NOT make him one of his special dishes…instead I made something new……Roasted Pork with Cranberry Orange & Apple Chutney.

Few weeks ago I picked up a new product from President’s Choice Cranberry Orange Sauce so I decided to pair it up with some roasted apples and Sherry wine to make a chutney for pork roast (hubs loves pork roast).


Ingredients for Pork Roast:

  • 3lbs Boneless Pork Loin
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Apple Juice
  • 2Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder

Ingredients for Chutney:

  • 1 cup Cranberry Orange Sauce
  • 1 Large Apple
  • 1/4 cup Sherry Wine (or Sherry cooking wine)

STEP 1: Rub the pork with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place it in a large Ziploc bag. In a bowl mix together brown sugar, apple juice and apple vinegar. Pour it over the pork loin. Close the bag. Move it around to coat the pork all over and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour or so.

STEP 2: When you are ready to roast the pork preheat the oven to 400F. Place the pork loin inside the roasting pan on top of the roasting rack. Pour some liquid on the bottom. Water is just fine. You can use vegetable stock as well.

STEP 3: Roast the pork for about 1 hour and 15 minutes or till it is done. The pork loin should be nice and brown on the outside and juicy on the inside.

STEP 4: 15 minutes before the pork is done core the apple and slice it into quarters. Place it on the roasting rack beside the roast.

STEP 5: After the pork is done take it out of the oven and let is rest for 15 minutes to let the juices set.

STEP 6: Meanwhile slice the roasted apple into chunks. Put it into pan together with cranberry orange sauce. Let it heat through. Add the Sherry wine and let it simmer for few more minutes.

STEP 7: Slice the pork. Plate and scoop some chutney over it.

I served this dish with creamy mashed potatoes and it was delicious.

Next time I will make it with cranberries and apples only as my kids didn’t like the cranberry orange sauce that much. I found out that there is a ginger in the sauce and my kids don’t get along with Ginger that well (they do like Maryann…little humor for you).

We the adults…..especially the birthday boy….we loved it!

    I am not a lover of pork unless its cooked as a curry or on a barbecue etc. However, with the chutney, it looks divine! Going to give it a try xx

    Looks delicious, as usual! I love chutney – I'd eat it on ice cream (hmmm…really that sounds quite good doesn't it? ) I'll be adding this to my "recipes to try file" too.
