Roast Pork with Piquant Sauce


Pork roast, center cut (4 to 5 pounds)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 cup water


Cook roast in baking pan at 325 degrees F for 2-½ to 3 hours. (Use meat thermometer for accuracy; internal temperature should be 170 degrees F when done.) About 1-½ hours before roast is done, combine remaining ingredients for sauce in a 1-quart saucepan, mixing well with whisk. Simmer sauce ¾ hour and add pork drippings. Baste roast at least 3 times before it is done. Serve remaining sauce with roast.


Serves 4-6.
