Maple Baked Pork Loin
Slightly sweet and extra savory.
Serves 8 |
|4 lb boneless pork loin roast |
|1 tablespoon canola oil |
| Salt, to taste |
| Ground black pepper, to taste |
| Flour, for dredging |
|3/4 cup maple syrup |
|3/4 cup ketchup |
|1/3 cup water |
|1 tablespoon minced garlic |
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until smoking.
- Season the pork loin with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, and shake off excess.
- Carefully place pork loin in the skillet and sear until browned on all sides. Place pork loin on the baking sheet. Pull sides of aluminum foil up to make a barrier.
- Stir together the maple syrup, ketchup, water, and minced garlic in a mixing bowl. Pour 3/4 of this sauce over the pork. Fold the foil over the pork, and seal to form a packet. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 2 hours. Cover remaining sauce and place in the refrigerator.
- Carefully open up the foil packet and flatten out foil. Place baking sheet back in the oven and broil pork loin roast for 5 minutes. Serve pork loin roast with remaining sauce.
