Generally speaking, I’m not a huge fan of dijon mustard sauces, but this subtle, tangy sauce is the perfect compliment for this tender, juicy roast. The best part is its simplicity. It takes only a few minutes to make, but will leave folks impressed with your culinary skill! Better yet, it’s easy on the tummy.
Unfortunately because of the vinegar in this recipe, it is NOT recommended for the low histamine diet, even if you remove the pepper.
Pork Loin Dijon
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 2 lb center cut heritage raised pork loin roast
- Freshly Ground Salt and Pepper
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat an oven-proof skillet to medium-high heat on the stove and add the olive oil. Cover roast in salt and pepper before searing on all sides. In a small dish, combine mustard and vinegar. Using a basting brush, cover seared roast with mixture and place in pre-heated oven for 45 minutes to an hour, or until meat thermometer registers at least 145 degrees. For added kick, drizzle sliced roast with remaining sauce.
