Though this recipe requires a bit more preparation than most of my meals, I can promise you it's worth it! One my favorite things about this No Sugar Added Gluten-Free pork roast recipe is that it makes 2 delicious meals. You get to enjoy the first meal while the second meals cools. Then just pop it in the freezer for serving at a later date.
  • 1 6-7 pound boneless pork roast
Open Sesame Pork Roast Day 1
  1. Place the pork roast on a cutting board and separate the two halves of the pork roast if they are still attached to one another.
  2. Using a meat fork or sharp knife, poke holes all over the pork roast. Poke lots of holes. The more holes you poke in the roast, the more the marinade will permeate the roast.
  3. Place the pork roast in a large Zip Lock bag.
  4. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine them thoroughly.
  5. Pour the marinade over the roast. Seal the bag and turn it repeatedly to make sure that all portions of the roast have been coated with the marinade. Put the roast in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours.
Open Sesame Pork Roast Day 2
  1. About 2 hours before you want to serve the roast, preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Take the pork roast out of the refrigerator and remove the two halves of the roast from the Zip Lock bag and place them side on a broiler pan. Stick a meat thermometer into the thickest portion of one of the roasts, making sure that the tip is in the center of the roast and has not gone all the way through to touch the broiler pan.
  3. Discard the marinade.
  4. Put the roast in the 350° F oven for 30 minutes.
  5. While the roast is beginning to cook, combine all the glaze ingredients in a small bowl, whisking to combine them thoroughly. Set aside.
  6. When the roast has cooked for 30 minutes, take it out of the oven and spread one half of the glaze evenly over both halves of the roast.
  7. Return the roast to the oven for another 30 minutes, then take the roast out again and spread the remaining glaze over the halves of the roast.
  8. Return the roast to the oven for an additional 15 minutes, or until the meat thermometer reads 170° F. (Don't let it overcook or it will be dry!) Take the roast out of the oven and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  9. Place one of the roast halves on a cutting board and slice it very thinly. Serve this half of the roast immediately.
  10. After the second half of the roast has cooled, wrap it tightly in aluminum foil and label it so that you don’t forget what the heck it is. Place it in the freezer for a ready made future meal.
