Maple Glazed Pork Loin

I like things sweet. A lot of my recipes have a nice sweet sauce.

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.

This is my submission to Flashback Friday over at Kitchen Bouquet! This reminds me of something that my mom would have made many years ago!

I also hopped today at Blog Hop Friday and New Friend Friday! There are a lot of these hops and I don't do too many but these are from blogs that I really like so check them out! (not to insult the other blogs! :-)

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.

  1. Maple and pork really are such a perfect combination. this looks fantastic. Also I'm so glad you liked the summer squash casserole! I need to remake it so I can get a better is just that good!

  2. I just took out my pork loin from the freezer for dinner tomorrow. This sounds really tasty I will have to give it a try with the other half of my tenderloin.

  3. I love sweet with meat, but the hubs? Not so much! I love to add apples to pork, but he doesn't like it, so I usually do apples on the side just for me.

    Hope you have a great Friday!
