Yum Yum! We even belive it or not had a few wild blackberrys growing on our back fence that were ripe that we added. Spouse thought that the cheese was a little strong but I liked it and did add when served.
We had a smaller roast about 2 1/2 lb aso we cut back on the cheese and blackberry preserves by about 1/2.
4 lb pork loin roast
1 12 oz. jar rasberry (we used blackberry preserves)
1 tbsp honey
1/2 lb gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup pecans
preheat oven to 325
season pork with salt and pepper
cook on roasting rack in shallow baken pan uncovered for approximately 2 hours.
toast pecans in a skillet till they began to darken then set aside.
In same skillet mix blackberry preserves with honey and black pepper to taste.
Stiring often, heat till it reaches a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for a couple minutes.
Add 1/2 pecans chopped and 1/2 cheese to sauce.
After two hours remove roast and spoon half of the blackberry sauce over the roast.
Return to oven and cook approximately 30 more minutes.
When done remove from oven and let sit for 15 minutes befor slicing.
Garnish each portion with more of the blackberry sauce and crumbled cheese and toasted pecans.
