Maple-Baked Pork Loin Roast


Published: Friday, April 19, 2024

4 lb. boneless pork loin roast

Salt and pepper to taste

All-purpose flour for dredging

1 Tbsp. canola oil

¾ c. maple syrup

¾ c. ketchup

1/3 c. water

1 Tbsp. minced garlic

Preheat oven to 350°. Season pork roast with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour; shake off excess.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until smoking. Add roast and sear in hot oil until browned on all sides, about 1 minute per side. Transfer roast to a large sheet of aluminum foil set on top of a baking sheet.

Stir together maple syrup, ketchup, water, and garlic. Pour ¾ of the maple syrup sauce over pork. Fold the foil around pork and seal to form a packet.

Bake until the internal temperature reaches 170°, about 2 hours. Remove from oven and carefully open the foil packet. Turn on the broiler and broil roast for a few minutes until the sauce glazes the meat. Serve roast with remaining sauce. —8 servings.

Note: This recipe comes out best with the loin that has two sections. If you use a single loin, it still comes out great but does not fall apart quite so much.
