Pork Roast with Apple Mustard Glaze
1 (4 1/2 to 5 1/2-pound) bone-in pork loin end roast
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups apple juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Take the pork out of the refrigerator 45 minutes before you are ready to roast to allow the pork to come to temperature.
- Place the pork into a roasting pan fitted with a rack or onto a baking sheet, fat side up, and season with salt and pepper. Put in the oven and roast for 1 hour. Meanwhile, make the glaze.
- In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the apple juice to a boil and reduce it by half, about 10 minutes. Whisk in the brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard and simmer until thickened, another 5 to 7 minutes.
- After the pork has roasted for 1 hour, start brushing it with the glaze every 15 minutes. Cook until the roast reaches an internal temperature of 150 degrees F, about 2 hours total cook time. Remove from the oven, give it another coating of glaze, and let it rest, uncovered, for 15 minutes before carving. (Reserve 1 cup of the meat for the Round 2 Recipe Pork Hash).
