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.

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!
