Topped with an herby, glazed crust, this pork is tender, juicy, and bursting with flavor. It’s as impressive as a more expensive cut of beef, but easier on the wallet. Try this the next time you’re planning a fancy dinner at home. Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Recipe Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (5 pound) pork loin
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. 2 Combine garlic, sage, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and mix well. Rub mixture over all surfaces of the pork. Place pork on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. 3 Roast in the preheated oven until browned on top, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. 4 While the pork is cooking, whisk together vinegar, water, soy sauce, brown sugar, mustard, and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  5. 5 When pork is browned on top, remove from the oven and reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  6. 6 Lightly coat the top of the pork with 1/2 of the glaze mixture. Return to the oven and cook until the internal temperature reaches 145 to 150 degrees F (63 to 65 degrees C), about 45 minutes. Pour the remaining glaze over the pork during the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking.
  7. 7 Remove from the oven and lightly tent with foil. Allow to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  8. 8 Slice pork and serve with pan drippings and juices.

Chef's Notes

If your pork loin is larger than 5 or 6 pounds, trim off the ends and slice them into boneless pork chops. Pork freezes well, so it works great for budget-friendly cooking down the road; You can use whole grain mustard instead of Dijon.
