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.
