SERVINGS: 8 | Prep Time: 15 MINS | Cook Time: 1.25 HOURS

    An easy recipe for a sweet, savoury and crunchy glaze on a juicy pork loin roast.

    INstructions:

      1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
      2. Trim the fat from the roast, leaving only a quarter inch of fat on top at the most.
      3. Season the pork loin with salt and pepper and open roast on a rack in a 425 degree F oven for 1/2 hour.
      4. Combine the brown sugar and Dijon mustard into a paste and fold the chopped pecans into it.
      5. Remove the roast from the oven after 30 minutes and reduce the heat to 375 degrees F.
      6. Spread the prepared paste evenly over the top of the roast and return to the oven.
      7. Baste the roast about every 15 minutes, scooping up the glaze and nuts that fall off back over the top of the roast.
      8. Continue to roast until the internal temperature of the roast hits between 145 to 160 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
      9. Let the roast rest for 10 minutes after you take it out of the oven before carving and serving.
