Pin It This is tonight's recipe (compliments of Recipezaar.com)...check back later for pictures!


Chipotle & Honey Glazed Pork Recipe #49161

Easy, quick, and subtly spice, this one's a winner for weekday dinners, or even for company. Nice any time of the year with salads or fresh corn in the warm months, and with winter squash and spinach during cold months. Adapted from epicurious.com,
30 min | 10 min prep
SERVES 6 (6 points per serving)
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Purée chipotles in adobo with garlic and honey in a blender until you have a smooth glaze.
  3. Pat pork dry and sprinkle with salt and allspice, rubbing the mixture into the meat.
  4. Put pork on a foil-lined baking sheet and spread with the glaze to coat well.
  5. Roast the pork in the middle of oven until an instant-read thermometer registers 155°F, about 20 minutes.
  6. Let pork stand 5 minutes on a cutting board before cutting into thin slices.

OK, I forgot to take pictures, so am including a picture from the recipe website.  But it was GREAT!  SPICY hot, but great.  Maybe next time I'll cut it down to two peppers from three.
