“Eat your food. There are starving children in XX!”
This ploy to get you to eat has been used by parents for many decades, and possibly even longer. The guilt that you should be so thankful that you should eat instead of letting food go to waste. While I agree we should not waste food, the guilt trip is not really the most effective strategy. Also you know the child is thinking that the parent should just package up the dinner and send it off to those starving kids!
When my wife was young, she was once told to eat her dinner and that there were starving children in India. A number of months later her family was going on a little trip and when she found out where they were going she didn’t want to go. She was concerned that they were going to see all the starving children in……Indiana!
The pork loin I made was well short of the 5 pounds the recipe calls for. Just watch the temperature of the meat and you’ll know when it is done.
The orange juice and soy really enhance the natural flavor of the pork.
Getting the marinade ready.
I neglected to pick up a baking bag, so I triple wrapped it in foil.
A delicious roast.
Orange Soy Pork Loin
Prep Time: 5 min | Cook Time: 2 hr 30 min | Makes: 10
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 1 (5 pound) boneless pork loin roast
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, stir together the orange juice, soy sauce, olive oil, red onion slices, rosemary and garlic. Place the pork roast in a baking bag, and set in a roasting pan or baking dish. Pour the orange juice mixture over the roast, making sure to coat entirely. Close the bag according to package instructions.
3. Bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours in the preheated oven, until the internal temperature of the loin is at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove from the oven, and let stand for about 10 minutes to settle the juices. Carefully open the bag and remove the roast. Slice and serve with a little of the drippings drizzled over.
