Apple-Glazed Pork Loin Recipe

An impressive main dish for any special occasion, this succulent pork roast has a sweet, tangy flavor. "I found this easy recipe in a church cookbook," Jean Graf-Joyce reports from Albany, Oregon. "Friends constantly request it."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour + standing YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-1/8 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 boneless rolled pork loin roast (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) apple jelly
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice, divided


  • 1. Rub 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper over roast. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt jelly over low heat. Whisk in mustard and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Brush roast lightly with jelly mixture.
  • 3. Bake 30-40 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting once with jelly mixture. Let roast stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • 4. Stir drippings in pan to loosen browned bits. Pour into a measuring cup; skim fat. Stir the remaining jelly mixture, lemon juice, salt and pepper into drippings; heat through. Serve with the roast. Yield: 12 servings.

"Absolutely delicious! It's a big hit everyone keeps asking me to make this one. The only thing I did different is add a half cup of brown sugar."

Sounds good except for the Dijon mustard.  Wonder if regular yellow mustard would work.
i don't think plain yellow mustard would work- the dijion helps give it it's flavor but don't worry, if you don't like dijion, it's not an overwealming flavor in it.

"I've cooked alot of Pork Loin, but this was the best ever! My husband couldn't stop going on and on about how juicy and tasty it was. He even noticed how pretty it was when it came out of the oven! My family couldn't get enough of it and the recipe will definitely be going at the top of my list of "make again dishes!""
