Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze
This simple pork roast is topped with a tangy maple syrup, Dijon mustard, soy sauce, and cider vinegar glaze. It's perfect for a special occasion.
This is fabulous, I've made it several times, it usually takes around 2 hours in the oven. The 2nd time I made it, I ran out of real maple syrup, so used 1/2 c real, 1/2 c pancake syrup and it was very sweet, so I added about 1 tablespoon of tabasco sauce. Oh baby, it remained sweet but had a subtle kick, I have since added tabasco every time I've made it, even though I use only real maple syrup, really keeps it from being overpoweringly sweet. The other thing I've done is to add in two loaf pans filled with carrots, onions, potatoes, and yams (cut into 1" chunks). I then made up another batch of the glaze and dumped 1/2 over each pan stirred to coat evenly and covered with foil, I stirred them when before serving. It was a heavenly companion to the roast. I cook it in a round glass pan that barely fits the roast, this keeps the glaze from being just a burnt on goop at the end of cooking, so I have some glaze remaining to drizzle over the slices.
Loved this recipe. I glazed the pork several time and cooked it a little longer but at a lower temperature. It was delicious.
I have to say, this is the very first review I have written on this site, even though I have a couple recipes on here myself. I had a 4+ pound pork loin in the fridge and saw this recipe and decided to give it a try. I doubled the glaze because I had a larger pork roast and I decided to mix it in a saucepan and reduce it to thicken it up because I knew I was going to put it in the crock pot. I seasoned the roast with salt, pepper and a little garlic powder. I poured the glaze mixture over the roast in the crock pot and put the crock pot on low and cooked it slow for about 8 hours, occasionally basting it with the crock pot juices using a turkey baster. When it was done, I sliced it about an inch thick and used the juices from the crock pot to pour into little dipping sauce cups. Dipped each bite into the dipping sauce and I must say that this recipe is actually very, very good. Simple, yet tasty. I (personally) wouldn't do this in the oven, just because pork is so lean and dries out too quickly. Had
This was a great and simple recipe to make. Turned out delicious!
I added some beer and herbs to mine and am trying to cook it in my turbo wave oven crossing my fingers it will work out good:)
Here's a simple maple-flavored roast that will feed a crowd. It takes only 15 minutes to prepare, then slow roasts in the oven until it is fall-apart tender!
This is a honey mustard glaze with black pepper for a little spice. You may decrease or omit the pepper if you don't want it so spicy. You can also decrease honey if it is to sweet for your taste.
