Pork Roast

Today, I’m sharing this awesomely easy and equally delicious Pork Roast Recipe. It’s sweet, spicy and only requires 5 ingredients. SERIOUSLY. It’s a Sunday dinner kind of meal that you can feed to the masses that no one will complain about. It’s just a lovely roasted and flavored piece of meat, especially with these. Or this. Orrrrrr this. Mmmm………

And behold, it came to pass that Lauren could never become a vegetarian.


Here’s how you make it:

Rosemary, maple, mustard salt and pepper in a bowlStart by throwing together the sauce we’re going to slather on the meat. This is just equal parts dijon mustard to maple syrup {use the real kind, guys!} with some chopped fresh rosemary and some salt and pepper.

Sauce mixed in a bowlStir that together and set it aside.

Unbaked pork roastNow grab a 2-2 1/2 pound pork roast {the kind tied together with string that has a layer of fat on just the one side} and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Take a hot second to rub these seasonings in.

unbaked pork roast with sauceThen pour over half of that sauce we made and rub that all around too. This stuff is bueno. Throw the roast into the oven and cook it ’til it’s done. {1-1 1/2 hours or until the internal temp of the meat registers at 145 to 150 degrees}. Pull it out of the oven, tent it with foil for 10 minutes, slice and serve.

Pork roast with gravy

Add on the leftover sauce if you see fit. I thought it was better with a little extra maple syrup added to it….but that’s just because I like me some sweet meat.
This is a fabulous way to cook up a big roast and impress a crowd, plus it was super simple to do. Set it and forget it!

Here’s the printable, yo. Have a fabulous Wednesday!

    Looks delicious! Being Dutch I’ m not familiar with your names for the meat you use. Would you add any salt, pepper or seasoning to your meat before you have it tied up?
    By the way, love your blog and your recipes????????!
    Greetings, Diana

    Awesome recipe! One of our family favorites. Even my two picky boys, ages 4 and 9, like it. My oldest asked for the recipe when he was 7 so he could have it when he moved out in 15 years! 😉

    Hi Lauren, this is such a great recipe, it’s so easy but it packs quite a punch and it seems like such a fancy meal. The last time I made it, I sliced a couple of onions and put a stick of butter in the bottom of the pan and then put the meat on top of them. When I served it, I spooned some of the butter/onion/sauce mix over the top of the meat, oh my, so good. Thank you for this awesome recipe!

    This pork roast was delicious! I made it for my family, and it looked so good I ended up having a piece, too. That is a real testament to the recipe as I have never cared for pork and I have not eaten it in 19 years. Truly–19 years! Yet I had to eat a piece of this pork roast. It was really good, too! You can be sure we’ll make this again–easy and delicious.

    The sauce is good, however, I ignored my better instincts and followed your cooking method despite the voice in my head saying, ‘wait!!! Noooooo!!’ Friends, please learn from my mistake and SEAR your pork first. If you cannot sear it, you will need to cook it twice as long (or more) as the recipe suggests. I followed the directions 100%, and the pork was so dry we couldn’t even swallow it. I’ve used this same roast from the same farmer all summer to make excellent, moist dishes, but the difference is searing!

    Holy smokes! I made this for dinner last night, and I can’t believe how easy it was to make something so delicious. My husband was literally licking his plate clean after going back for thirds. Thanks!!

    This looks great! Will try it out very soon, as I’m always looking for ways to change up my pork recipe routine.

    P.S. Is the movie ELF?! : )

      You could, but you’d have to cook it for hours over indirect heat to make sure it didn’t burn. Your best bet: get pork chops and grill them with the same sauce.

    Oh my, this sounds so good! I’m always looking for new ways to cook pork, and anything with dijon is totally my jam. I’m trying this for dinner tonight! Thanks for the great idea.

    This pork roast looks delicious, and I don’t even like pork! Not sure about the new layout, I feel like the ads are taking over my screen! There’s a lot of them, but I guess that’s where the money’s at.

    I love how everything is moved up in this design – definitely cleaner and I get to see your gorgeous photos sooner 🙂 I’ll have to get used to the left sidebar, I must admit 🙂

    Love this, Lauren! I have a pork roast in the freezer that I was going to make this weekend. This with some roast asparagus and potatoes is so happening for sunday supper!

    Helloooo Easter Dinner! This is just what I’ve been looking for! I was hoping to do something other than the traditional ham and this is it! Thanks!!!

    Hey Lauren! This pork looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it. And I love the new layout! So clean looking and organized! Love it!
