If you are looking for a recipe to make when you have company, this rosemary maple pork roast is a perfect option. This would even be fabulous and easy enough to make for Mother’s Day dinner. Especially if you are making your own dinner.
Now I used a regular pork roast to make this Rosemary Maple Pork Roast. However, I think it would be even better with a pork tenderloin. The tenderloin would also take much less time to cook.
Start by lining a roasting pan with a piece of aluminum foil. Then spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. This makes clean up so much easier. Place the roast into the pan and season well with salt and pepper.
Next, you are going to grab about and add in some Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and fresh chopped rosemary. Take just half of that mixture and pour it over the roast. Set the other half of the mixture in the fridge. You will use this later for serving the roast.
Now it’s time for the roast to head into a 375 degree oven. Depending on your roast, it may take you to 90 minutes to get it fully cooked. It needs to reach 145 degrees. You remove it from the oven and tent with foil and allow to rest 10 minutes before serving. Just slice and drizzle with that remaining sauce to serve. That sauce caramelizing on the roast making a nice crust on the outside of the roast. Then drizzling the sauce after for serving just amplifies the flavor with the meat.
