Grilled Rack of Pork with Pomegranate Glaze

I’ve seen so many great recipes floating around in the blogosphere using POM Wonderful, I was fortunate enough to receive a case of this wonder juice myself. After holding on to it for a while, drinking some and giving some away, I decided to make a glaze with it. Seeing that its BBQ season again ( yipee!) I thought it would be perfect with some grilled meats. Well let me just say, it was!

I grilled and seasoned my rack of pork, with garlic, rosemary and thyme, and at the last 15 minutes I brushed a little glaze all over. After it rested for about 10 minutes I drizzled more of this beautiful colored glaze on top. I served it with some whole wheat couscous, and a raw kale salad made with fresh lemon, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese.

This stuff is like a superpower!! 100% pomegranate juice, the health benefits are amazing! Just look at that color, doesn’t it just scream ANTIOXIDANTS?

Reducing this down makes the most delicious glaze! This recipe was adapted from the
Everyday Food site.

2 Cups Pomegranate Juice
1 Cup of Orange Juice
1 t. Dried Rosemary
3 Smashed Garlic Cloves
2 t. of Red Wine Vinegar
Salt & Pepper

In a large skillet combine everything, boil on high reducing in half while scraping down sides of skillet with a wooden spoon or a heatproof spatula. After it thickens up a little strain everything through a fine mesh strainer. After I did that, I thickened it up even more. When finished, stir in 2 t. of red wine vinegar. Store leftover glaze in the frig.

For tons of ideas and recipes, and the many health benefits of this wonder juice go here.

Have a great weekend, and Buon Appetito!!

  1. 🙂 My last two posts have been on POM use in recipes.. Now it’s all gone and I’m disappointing.. Your reduction glaze for the grilled rack of pork looks amazing!!
    I am definitely going to have to keep POM on hand.. They were pretty brilliant passing this along to so many of us! Ciao and hugs..

  2. Oh, good lord this looks wonderful. I love POM juice. I probably shouldn’t admit this since it sort of negates all the health benefits, but its fabulous mixed with Champaign.

  3. This looks fantastic! I received a case of POM, too… got some great stuff to blog this week!

  4. A lovely idea Marie! POM knew what they were doing by giving this juice to the very best food bloggers!

  5. there are so many fabulous recipes using POM. I love the cherry/Pom myself to drink. I would love to try the reduction, I love a thick reduction sauce.

  6. RIght up my alley. I love the addition of the orange juice. I’ll just have to make this. I did make a dish a few posts ago using Pomegranate Liquor – I guess maybe I could add a splash of that to your sauce? Heehee!

  7. I should have hung on to mine longer too, because I keep seeing way more amazing things than what I used it for.

    I love what you did with it!

  8. Oh, sometimes I should NOT come to your blog. I’m pregnant and have a grilled rack of pork appetite with a Costco Rotisserie Chicken budget. Boo! Looks out of this world!

  9. great dinner…and great photos!

  10. I’d like some over vodka please (POM, that is).
    and I like your couscous tower!
    What time can I expect you?

  11. This is truly exotic sounding grilled pork. I can imagine how delicious it is.

  12. Oh, that looks delicious! I haven’t tried POM yet… am going to have to do that!

  13. That whole meal looks like something out of a very expensive restaurant. But yours is probably better. I’ve never used POM for cooking but your pork makes me yearn.

  14. Just in time for the weekend – a mouth-watering meal. It looks so beautiful – jewel-like. And I have been hoaridng one little bottle of it – in the back of the fridge. (Shh)

  15. The glaze looks and sounds amazing. Perfect over pork.

  16. I’ve received a case also and have been searching for recipes using POM..thank you for posting yours. I’ll have to try it.

  17. I declined that case since I had no idea what I would do with all of that juice!! That reduction is simply drooly. Was it delicious just to dip your finger in it and give it a lick? Pork is perfect to pair with it.

    Come see my cannoli- posted today!

  18. Won’t you ask the suppliers to send a case this way, please!!!! I can think of a million things to do with it!!! Your pork is obviously the one I will try first and then maybe a piece of boneless brisket, maybe……Amazing piece of meat you have made here!!!

  19. I love those red juices, Marie. Your pomegranate glaze looks delicious, and so pretty! I bet it would work famously on grilled tofu. (The couscous and greens look yummy, too.)

  20. Hi Marie!
    This looks beautiful, but where’s my POM?! haha

  21. Looks scrumptious. So very jealous to have pomegranate available all year round. I’ll just have to wait till December, sigh….

  22. I had my hubby take a look at this post, he’s the great BBQ’er in the family. This looks so good. Down here in Cali we have pomegranate juice in abundance. You can purchase this juice (fresh) at any road side stand during the summer. This reduction sauce sounds easy breezy! We’re trying it!!!

    Happy Sunday my friend….

  23. Ah, a pom superhero. I love it!

  24. When mine came my hubby sat and drank most of it!! I still haven’t made a post about it yet, your sauce looks terrific!!

  25. I have seen many delightful dishes made with this juicer lately. It is giving me some ideas for my own creations:D

  26. WOW…looks so good Marie. The more I see of POM, the more envious I get. Love the reduction glaze…YUM!!

  27. This looks amazing! Could pomegranit juice be replaced with something else? I haven’t really seen that here. But the dish looks too good!

  28. Thats a gorgeous glaze you got there. POM Wonderful is amazing in cooking.
