“This recipe for maple-brined pork roast is a delicious way for you to experience just how easy a simple brine really is. I love the way the meat gets infused with that subtly-sweet maple flavor.” - by Chef John
Original recipe yields 1 pork roast
- Mix water, salt, 1/3 cup maple syrup, garlic, ginger, rosemary, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Place pork loin in brine mixture and refrigerate for 8 to 10 hours.
- Remove pork from brine, pat dry, and season all sides with salt and black pepper.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Heat vegetable oil in an oven-proof skillet over high heat. Cook pork, turning to brown each side, about 10 minutes total.
- Transfer skillet to the oven and roast until pork is browned, about 40 minutes.
- Mix 2 tablespoons maple syrup and Dijon mustard together in a small bowl.
- Remove pork roast from the oven and spread maple syrup mixture on all sides. Cook for an additional 15 minutes, until the pork is no longer pink in the center. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

"Excellent flavor! Make sure that you don't over cook your roast - I put the glaze on at internal temp of 135 and next time I would do that at 125 - and cook to not quite 145. You want the FINAL tem..." See morep. to be 145, after resting. This is company worthy and very easy. Enjoy!"
"This was THE BEST PORK LOIN I have EVER had. I have several pork loin recipes but this is the one that I will use from now on. It was juicy and very tender. I did adjust my time to an hour instead ..." See moreof 40 minutes and then the 15 minutes after the glaze was added. You will not be disappointed."
