2 1/2 pounds
boneless pork loin roast
real maple syrup
prepared Dijon-style mustard
2 1/2 tablespoons
2 1/2 tablespoons
salt to taste
ground black pepper to taste
Fabulous. I found the flavour of the glaze wonderful but it was very thin. To avoid having to baste it constantly, I reduced the baste in a saucepan over medium heat until it thickened. I ended up with a glaze that went on and stayed on. One additional application of the glaze mid-way through cooking was all that was required. Also, if you've got the time, the pork can be made fabulously moist by setting the oven temperature at only 180 F. It will take about 3.5 hours for the internal temperature of the roast to reach 160 F (at which point its perfectly cooked), but it's worth it.
We made this pork for dinner last night - and the end result was nice...but the sauce is quite thin and can burn quite easily. We brined the pork before cooking and the end result was moist, flavorful pork.
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.
This was very easy to put together -a major plus for me. I opted to go the route of the crock pot as one of the other reviewers mentioned and it was fantastic. I simply placed the roast in the crock pot, poured the mixed ingredients on top, and let it cook on high for about 4 hours.
I also used pure maple syrup and it was perfect. I would suggest you make sure you're not using "maple flavored pancake syrup" if you want this to come out right.
Fabulous combination. I browned it in a pan with a little salt and pepper, then put everything into a crockpot on low for 8 hours. My family loved it! Came out tender as could be.
I've made it a number of times and each time it has turned out the same: FABULOUS.
I have also tried this recipe in a loaf pan (helps keep the juice from burning)with pork tenderloins in the oven. Once again, Fabulous. I did baste it every 10-15 minutes and turned it over half way thru. Lovely. Really.
WOW! This is absolutely wonderful. I had a 5# loin so I doubled the recipe, this made more than enough. I covered the bottom of the crock pot with glaze. Then dusted the loin on both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion granules. Placed the loin in the crock pot and then covered with the remaining glaze. Then when I returned home from church I ladled some of the glaze off and reduced it to make a gravy. I served this with mashed potatoes, corn and green beans. Delicious gravy! The pork came out very tender. Total time in the crockpot on high was 4.5 hours and there was not a hint of pink. Also, the maple syrup gave the loin a beautiful golden look without having to brown it first. I made the glaze the night before, placed in the fridge, so all I had to do before church was throw everything in the crock pot together, so easy! I made the glaze exactly to recipe and wouldn't change a thing! This is definitely going to be a keeper in our house; I can't wait to make this for company!
This was delicious! My roast actually took 2 hours to cook completely. I would recommend basting the meat with the juices every 15-20 minutes.
The first time, I made this recipe as-is, and it was delicious!! The second time, I upped the oven temp to 425 for the first 30 minutes, then backed it down to 375 until the internal temp was 160. Doing this crusted the outside and sealed in the juices better. This one is a cold-weather favorite!
