This was a nice sweet maple glaze for this pork loin. Everyone loved it. Even the 8 year old who never tries anything new, wanted to try it and he loved it! Yeah!
I like when that happens.
So this marinated in my frig for several hours and then I stuck it in the oven and after about 25 minutes I poured a bit more of the marinade over it and then cooked it for another 25 minutes. I still had some left in the bag, I wish I would have been smart enough to put it on the stove to cook it and thicken it and use as a sauce.
That would have been tasty.
Still, there was enough glaze on it to make it nice and sweet. Yum.
Maple Glazed Pork Loin
1 pork loin (mine was about 1 1/2 lbs. I think)
1/4 cup I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, melted
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup brown sugar
Place the roast in a big plastic resealable bag. In a small bowl, stir together the rest of the ingredients and pour into bag and seal. Turn to coat, refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 375. Place the roast onto a foil lined pan and pour about 1/3 of the marinade over it. Cook for about 25 minutes and then pour about 1/3 of the marinade over the top again. Cook for about 25 - 30 more minutes or until temperature is at least 160.
