Look at the beautiful roses!! <3 <3 <3

YUm yum yum yum yum yum yum! This is serious sunday dinner fare. Also it makes great leftovers. The recipe is from, but here it is for your convenience.

  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 cup real maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons prepared Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir together the maple syrup, mustard vinegar, soy sauce, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Place pork roast in a shallow roasting pan. Spread glaze evenly over pork roast.
  3. Roast pork in the preheated oven uncovered, until internal temperature measured with a meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 1 hour. Remove from oven, and let rest about 10 minutes before slicing to serve.

Micah likes to put the meat in a slow cooker and cooks it all day while we are at church. It is AMAZING this way (when you are like me and like you meat as tender as butter) but no huge difference. We also had a pork loin that was pre-brined with salt, so that might have also helped with the flavor. Try it served with homemade apple-sauce!

I should be posting a recipe for Sweet and Sour Chicken soon!
