While most Western versions of peanut sauce are made with peanut butter, this authentic Thai peanut sauce starts with real peanuts–and you’ll taste the difference! At the same time, it is super easy and quick to make–and is really versatile. This peanut sauce can be used for a variety of purposes, from a dip for veggies to a sauce for chicken or beef satay. Or use it to make a delicious cold noodle salad or as a marinade for grilled chicken or tofu.
Easy to prepare and the glaze on this roast is delicious!
1 tsp. dried rosemary
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. black pepper
1 bone-in pork loin roast(about 5 lbs.)
1 can(11 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup orange marmalade
6 tbsp. orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup catsup
2 tbsp. honey
2-1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1-1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
Combine the rosemary, minced garlic and black pepper. Rub over roast, covering all sides.
Place the roast, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake uncovered at 350°, for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. Remove from oven.
Arrange the mandarin oranges on the roast. Combine glaze ingredients and brush over roast. Bake 30 minutes longer or until a meat themometer reads 160° to 170°, brushing often with the glaze. Remove from oven.
Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
I didn’t exactly follow the recipe, so I had to adjust the cooking time a little bit. I used a 3.8 lb. BONELESS roast I had on hand. I cooked it in a small roasting pan WITHOUT a rack for 1-1/2 hours. After adding the mandarins and returning the roast to the oven for 30 minutes, it only registered 130° on the meat thermometer. After another 20 minutes in the oven, it finally got up to 160°. The total cooking time for me was 2 hours and 20 minutes, within the range of 35-40 minutes per pound, which I have always used as a rule of thumb when cooking a pork roast.
- I found that using a brush for the glaze knocked the mandarins off the roast, so I used a spoon to apply the glaze instead.
- Opening the oven door multiple times to apply the glaze will extend the cooking time.
- Always use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of cooked pork.
- Makes great leftover pork sandwiches!

If it’s your first visit here, welcome! If you’ve been here before, welcome back! After a nearly 3 year hiatus, ‘At Grandma’s Table’ is back with an all new look and a new recipe! Future posts will be published on an occasional basis. See the new post below to get the recipe for:
Vida’s Coconut Macaroons
It’s been several years since we’ve had a new post here on ‘At Grandma’s Table‘. I recently ran across this old family recipe and being that it’s one of the EASIEST cookie recipes I’ve ever used, I felt compelled to share it here. I hope you enjoy!
This recipe is from my Mother’s friend, Vida. She was a great cook, baker and homemaker. As kids, we always enjoyed a trip over to Vida’s house! Here’s her recipe for Coconut Macaroons:
1-1/2 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 TSP. almond flavoring
Preheat oven to 325°
Combine ingredients and drop by teaspoonfuls on to greased cookie sheet. Bake until brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet. Remove with metal spatula and cool completely on wire rack.
Even on a well-greased cookie sheet, these cookies will tend to stick a bit. If you use a newer or ‘bright’ cookie sheet, they will be a little easier to remove. Parchment paper is a good option to eliminate the sticking.
A new recipe on AGT! What could be next? A new Friday Funnies??
I had Easter dinner this afternoon with a cousin who took his first steps around this table of long ago. He is now in his early 60s, I am just 70. The warm tones of the old color photo let you know at once this must be the 1950s.
Belle Porter, Gampa’s English downstairs “lady” [you could never call them maids – they were the ladies] would serve the food with her pince-nez balancing delicately on her nose and making corrections to my childish actions in low, kindly tones. Meat was on a silver parsley-ringed platter; green vegetables looked stunning in a silver bowl, and the mashed potatoes were peaked to perfection. I now know that the only beef served there was aged and what a treat. Lamb was not served with mint jelly. No it was served with home made mint sauce and it was warm and sweet.
Grandmother had died the year I was born so my father sat at the head of the table opposite Gampa. He was weak on one side due to a brain tumor so his foot lay heavily at times on the “buzzer”‘ beneath the carpet Grandmother used to touch to ring Belle for the next course. Poor Belle, she popped in and out like a cuckoo when Dad hit that buzzer multiple times by mistake.
There were nothing but arm chairs at Gampa’s table. He felt it was not very democratic for a host and hostess to have the only comfortable chairs with arms. He therefore had an antique chair he favored copied eleven times by an old Rochester firm named Hayden hat specialized in reproductions.
A word about the silver loving cup in the center of the table. Gampa hated people who went as guests to peoples’ homes and commented on the contents therein. One poor guest asked what the silver thing was in the middle of the table. Gampa looked at him and said slowly and calmly: “my father’s ashes; like them near me when I eat.”
My brothers and another male cousin are all living out-of-town with large and growing families of their own but cousin Curtice and I hold down the fort here in Rochester. We no longer have dinners at one of our homes but at the retirement home where he lives. It is lovely and we have our even lovelier, warm memories. We are blessed to have one another and to have learned about the lasting value of family and not “things” at Gampa’ s table.
Potato Salad I think!
Well written, informative post. Thanks for sharing!
Did you know that TODAY is National Potato Lovers Day! How will you celebrate? Souplantation/ Sweet Tomatoes has baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, Loaded Baked Potato Soup w/bacon, Irish Potato Leek Soup, and two kinds of potato salad. Happy National Potato Lovers Day!
The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial Solanum tuberosumof the Solanaceae family (also known as the
nightshades). The word potato may refer to the plant itself as well as the edible tuber. In the region of the Andes, there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were first introduced outside the Andes region four centuries ago, and have become an integral part of much of the world’s cuisine. It is the world’s fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat, and maize. Long-term storage of potatoes requires specialised care in cold warehouses.
Wild potato species occur throughout the Americas, from the United States to…
