President's Party Pork

Our president, Cam Heaps, has been known to host many a pig roast. This is a sure winner with him! Salvage the loin and proceed as follows:


Preheat the oven to 425 F. Place the pork loin on a rack over a roasting pan and fill the bottom with an inch of beer. Season pork with salt and pepper. In a bowl, combine the orange juice, honey, soy sauce, sherry (or your substitute), hoisin sauce, black beans, five-spice powder and garlic. Mix well. Coat the pork with all of the paste, rubbing it in well. Place the oranges and watercress beside the pork loin but reserve a few segments and watercress sprigs for garnishing later on. Roast pork for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 F and cook for 45-55 minutes more, basting every 15-20 minutes with the juices in the pan. When the pork is cooked thoroughly (it should reach 165 degrees on a meat thermometer) remove it from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Resting keeps the juices inside the roast! Serve adorned with the extra watercress and mandarins or tangerines.
