Roasted Honey-Pepper Pork
Source of Recipe
This is very powerful. I think it would be better served at a lavish smorgasbord where the zippy taste is a small treat.
List of Ingredients
2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin roast, tied up
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons brown mustard
2 tablespoons coarse-ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 300°F.
Score 1/2-inch deep slits all around pork roast, taking care not to cut the string holding the roast together. Place in a baking dish.
Combine honey, mustard, pepper, thyme and salt in a small bowl; mix until well blended.
Brush over the roast, working well into the slits; bake for 1 hour. Pull out rack just enough to turn roast over; brush on remaining honey mixture.
Cook about 45 minutes more or until thermometer inserted into center reads 170°F. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
