Port, a sweet fortified wine is usually served after a meal. This recipe uses the sweetness of the port and combines with the natural sweetness of honey for this grilled roast.

1 tablespoon Kosher salt
1 1/2 cups tawny port
1 cup Orange juice
1/4 cup Honey
2 tablespoons Cider vinegar

Everyone at dinner loved it.

This recipe does two things which are not recommended: putting hot marinade on cold meat, then chilling again (which gives bacteria and other microorganisms plenty of time to grow) and boiling marinade to make a sauce (which can lead to cross-contamination on handles, utensils, etc.). If you decide to make this, I would STRONGLY suggest you make the marinade, then chill it, then set some aside for your sauce, adding the rest to the pork to marinate.
