Dijon-Rubbed Pork with Rhubarb Sauce
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + standing
Makes12 servings (1-1/2 cups sauce)
- 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 pounds)
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
- 1/3 cup orange juice
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- Score the surface of the pork, making diamond shapes 1/4 in. deep. In a small bowl, combine the mustard, garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper; rub over pork.
- Coat a roasting pan and rack with cooking spray; place pork on rack in pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
- In a small saucepan, bring the sauce ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 8-12 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Serve warm with pork.
Editor's NoteIf using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

Made this a yr. or so ago and we loved it. Went hunting for it this yr. & have now saved it to my recipe box. I also froze rhubarb this yr. for the sole purpose of making this recipe throughout the winter.

This is the second time I reached for this recipe. Definately a keeper. I'm using it for the Rhubarb Sauce this time, but I have fond memories of the time I used it with the Pork Tenderloin.

This was real tasty. I used minced garlic out of a jar, next time I will use FRESH. I wasn't sure if my husband and kids would go for the rhubarb sauce but they did.
