This is so simple to make, yet so delicious I’ve made it several times for Christmas dinner.

~Maple Pork Roast~

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine:

1 cup real maple syrup

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

2 and 1/2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 and 1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Pour sauce over a 3 lb boneless loin pork roast. Cook uncovered for an hour, or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before slicing to serve. This is wonderful with garlic mashed potatoes, candied yams and fresh, steamed green beans.

*Light Version* by Tamela Erichsen:

I made the Maple Syrup Pork with a few modifications. I used Mrs. Butterworth’s sugar free syrup instead of maple syrup (cute hubby is diabetic) and used a lean pork tenderloin. Cubed a fresh sweet potato, microwaved that for 10 minutes, placed that around the tenderloin, and poured sauce over that as well.
Used a meat thermometer and let it cook till 160 (only about 30 minutes)- it was fantastic. My husband said this recipe is a keeper!!!

Thanks Tamela!

Enjoy!
