  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
Dijon Sauce:
  • 1 cup white wine

  • 2 tbsp butter cubed
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 450º F. Generously oil a roasting pan.
  2. Trim any thick fat from the pork loin and place it in the roasting pan. Mix together the mustard, honey and garlic. Spread evenly over the pork. Roast for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 375º F. Continue roasting until the internal temperature is 155º F. If roast begins to brown too much cover with foil. Remove from the oven and tent with foil for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Make the Dijon sauce:
  4. In a saucepan on medium-high; reduce the wine to half, concentrating the flavour. Turn heat down to low and whisk in the mustard and honey. Simmer for a couple minutes. Whisk in the butter piece by piece, whisking each in before adding the next.
  5. Slice the pork into thin slices. Serve with warm Dijon sauce and appropriate side dishes.
