Expert Tips

  • Dried orange peel can be used in place of fresh orange peel. Look for dried peel near the seasonings at the grocery store.
  • Raisins can be used in place of the dried cranberries in this roast, but will impart a slightly sweeter flavor.
  • Steamed green beans and a mixed rice pilaf go well with this pork roast. Complete the meal with warm rolls and milk.
