0 Orange Onion Pork Roast

Oh boy. August has been quite the busy month for me. Long work weeks do not work well with healthy diets and gluten free, which is why I like to make meals such as roasts that keep well over the course of the week, so I can cook once and eat it over the course of a few days. Here's a really easy pork roast that has a really tasty orange garlic sauce that I hope you enjoy! Serve with your favorite greens and seasoned rice!

Serves: 4-5 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes

2lb pork roast
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic diced
3/4 cup orange juice
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 white wine
2 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp thyme
1 tbsp rosemary
1 tsp paprika
salt and pepper

Preheat a pot over medium high heat and add a few tablespoons of oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the pork, and  place into the pot. Let the pork cook for a few minutes, gaining a good sear. Flip the pork and continue cooking for another few minutes.

Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion and garlic. Once the onions begin to turn translucent, add the remaining ingredients. Stir the contents of the pot, reduce heat to medium low, and cover for about 40 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 140F.
Remove the pork from the pan, and cook the juice down over medium heat for about 10 minutes until the juice reduces to a sauce.

Serve the pork with vegetables and rice, spooning the sauce over top the pork.

I hope you enjoy!
