Roast Pork with Plum Sauce

2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup chopped onions
1 cup plum preserves
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
3 drops Tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Garlic salt to taste
One 5-pound pork loin roast
2 cloves garlic, slivered
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons dried or fresh rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 1/2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg


To make the saucce, melt the butter in a saucepan; add the onions and saute until tender. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Moisten the roast with a damp paper towel to help hold the seasonings. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic, salt, herbs, and spices. With a sharp knife make 1/2-inch-deep slits in the top of the roast. Press the seasoning mixture into the slits, and rub the remainder over the entire roast. Place the roast in a roaster pan and pour 1/2 cup plum sauce over it. Cover and bake for 2 1/2 hours. Uncover the roast and baste it with additional plum sauce; bake for 30 minutes longer, basting 2 or 3 times, until the roast is nicely browned. Serve the remaining plum sauce on the side for dipping
