Roast Pork with Apple Juice-Honey Mustard Glaze

Roast Pork with Apple Juice-Honey Mustard Glaze

3-pound pork loin roast

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 cups apple juice

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon dry oregano

1 teaspoon dry rubbed sage

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Salt and black pepper to taste

To make the glaze: Add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, onions and garlic to a medium-size saucepan and cook on high heat for 3 minutes. Add apple juice and cook until 1 cup of liquid remains, about 15 minutes. Add honey, oregano and sage. Continue to cook until glaze is syrupy-thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Add the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and black pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a large sauté pan on stovetop. On high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and sear pork on all sides for about 5 minutes. Place in oven and roast about 30 to 45 minutes or until internal temperature shows about 135 degrees on an instant-read thermometer; glaze pork 3 or 4 times during roasting process. Slice roast and serve. Makes 6 servings.
