honey dijon pork loin

honey dijon pork loin

I have been absent in my food blogging. Why? Too many things going on that prevents me from experimenting in the kitchen. It's pretty much what's been happening when Spring comes. This is the second year and I blame it all on my daughter's desire to play Lacrosse.  Yup, mommyhood takes over but this will be far over before I know it so I have to cherish it.  My daughter is a Junior in high school and not to mention that I also have a son who is graduating from high school this year. I'm sure some of you can relate having to juggle so many things - sports, SATs, ACTs, school performances here, graduation photos, graduation...

But we still gotta eat! And pork is a favorite.  Here's a recipe for an easy Honey Dijon Pork Loin. I do caution you that you need at least 4 hours of prep time for this recipe.  Trust me, it's worth the wait.

Prep and cook time:  up to 6 hours
Serves: 4
You will need: Baking pan with rack

3 Tbsp coarse sea salt
2 tsp ground pepper
3 Tbsp light brown sugar
2-2.5 lbs pork loin
1/2 cup honey dijon mustard

Combine salt, pepper and sugar. Rub on pork loin.  Transfer to a re-sealable bag.  Marinate in the fridge for 4 hours, taking it out in the last 30 minutes to bring the temperature down.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Place rack in baking pan. Brush honey mustard on pork loin and transfer to baking pan.  Cook for 70-75 minutes until internal temperature of pork loin reaches 160 degrees.  Let meat sit for 15 minutes before slicing.

Enjoy this SARAPLICIOUS! dish.

Being a parent is a busy, busy position. But we do what we do for our children because we love them. Nice to see you back with this gorgeous loin! :)

Thanks Ray! Between cooking classes, photography and just keeping up with my teenagers sometimes I ran out of time in the day.
