Something about the sweetness (and tartness) of apples with the zip or mustard just goes so nicely with pork. This simple pork roast recipe is a comfort food crowd pleaser!


2-2.5 pounds bone-in pork roast

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup apple juice

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

3 tablespoons of our favourite mustard (Dijon or brown are especially nice, but good old yellow works well, too)

2 cloves of garlic, minced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F 

In a saucepan stir together the brown sugar, apple juice, mustard, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook the sauce down over medium heat until reduced by half. 

While the sauce is reducing, pat the pork roast dry with paper towel. This will help the glaze adhere a little better. Spread the thickened glaze evenly over the roast and place it in a shallow roasting pan. *Tip: this is a sticky sauce, so to make clean up easier, consider lining your pan with aluminum foil.

Roast the pork, uncovered for about an hour or until an internal thermometer reaches 145 degrees. 

Remove from oven, and let rest about 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
