  • Prep time:15 Minutes


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 2 (2 1/2-pound) boneless pork loin roasts, trimmed

Bring first 13 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf.

Prepare fire by piling charcoal or lava rocks on 1 side of grill, leaving the other side empty. Place rack on grill. Arrange roasts over empty side, and grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat 2 hours and 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 160°, basting every 30 minutes with sauce.

Bring remaining sauce to a boil, and boil 1 minute. Slice pork roast, and serve with sauce. Garnish, if desired.
