This roasted pork loin is seasoned then glazed with a mixture of brown sugar, mustard, and balsamic vinegar. Serve this great tasting pork roast with mashed potatoes and your favorite vegetable side dishes.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 2 hours, 30 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours, 35 minutes


  • 1 pork loin roast, bone-in, about 5 pounds
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in half
  • salt and pepper
  • Glaze:
  • 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic or cider vinegar


Rub pork roast all over with cut sides of the garlic; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place roast on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast at 325° for about 2 hours. Brush with glaze (see below) and continue roasting for about 30 minutes longer, or until pork registers 160 to 170 degrees F. when a meat thermometer is inserted into a meaty part of the roast (not touching bone).

Brown Sugar Glaze: Combine glaze ingredients in a saucepan; blend well. Stir over medium-low heat until bubbly. Set aside.

Let roast rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serves 6 to 8.

Pork Loin Roast, Member BGirl1

I would not consider myself a good or even fair cook. To be honest, I don't enjoy cooking. However, I made this very simple meal today and my family was shocked at how good it was..I didn't tell them how easy it was to prepare, let's just keep this our little secret...LOL
