Marinate the pork loin the night before and you can have this satisfying Glazed Pork Roast ready in about an hour. While the roast is in the oven, sauté some spinach for a quick, healthy side dish.
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp tamari
- 1 Tbsp teriyaki sauce (gluten free if needed)
- 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Black pepper to taste
- 2 lb center-cut pork loin
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- In a bowl, mix together maple syrup, tamari, teriyaki sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Pierce the pork all over with a fork, then place in a freezer bag. Pour marinade on top and massage pork roast to coat evenly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking pan with foil. Lightly coat the foil with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer the pork loin onto the foil. Brush with the marinade and reserve the remaining marinade for later use.
- Roast for about 30 to 45 minutes, uncovered, or until a meat thermometer registers 145º. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes.
- In a small saucepan, combine the reserved marinade and the cornstarch. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the glaze from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Brush the glaze over the pork loin.
