Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 Cup ketchup
  • 1/4 Cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Tabasco brand Original Red Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon salt, divided in half
  • 1 boneless pork loin (about 2 pounds; 6 inches long)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat the vegetable oil in a small 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 5 minutes or until the onion has softened. Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Tabasco sauce, and 1/2 of the teaspoon of salt. Set aside 1/2 a cup of the sauce.

Rub the outside of the pork roast with the remaining 1/2 a teaspoon of salt. Place the pork in a roasting pan. Pour the sauce mixture over top  to completely cover the pork. Cover the pan tightly with foil and place it in the oven. Cook for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium. Place the roast pork on the grill. Cook the covered pork for 30 minutes, turning it frequently, and brushing it with the reserved ½ cup of sauce until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with sautéed green beans and sliced red onion tossed with cooked, crumbled bacon.

Barbecue Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
