We actually have a whole story full of pork loin ideas here:

For a simple recipe to try tonight, this one is a good option:

Pork Loin with Root Vegetables


  • 1/4  cup  Dijon-style mustard
  • 1-1/2  teaspoons  dried rubbed sage
  • 1  3-pound  pork loin center rib roast, backbone removed
  • 1  pound  (5 medium) parsnips, peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch chunks (about 3 cups)
  • 1  pound  small red potatoes, quartered
  • 1    medium Vidalia or other sweet onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 3  tablespoons  margarine or butter, melted
  • 1/2  cup  maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
  • 1  pound  (6 medium) carrots, peeled and cut into 1-1/2-inch chunks (about 3 cups)


1. Combine 2 tablespoons of the mustard and the sage; spread over surface of meat. Combine vegetables and margarine or butter; toss to coat. Place the roast, rib side down, in a shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into center of roast. Arrange vegetables around roast. Roast, uncovered, in a 325 degree F oven for 1-1/2 hours or until the vegetables are nearly tender.

2. Combine remaining mustard and syrup in a saucepan. Bring just to boiling. Drizzle over vegetables; toss to coat. Continue roasting about 30 minutes more or until thermometer registers 160 degrees F and juices run clear. Remove roast from oven. Cover roast with foil; let stand 10 minutes before carving. Just before serving, remove vegetables from pan juices with slotted spoon. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
