Easy Peasy Pork Roast


In the past few days the area of Southern Ontario that I live in has been hammered by snow and, yes, I used the “S” word. In fact we were so totally caught off guard by the amount we received that it turned normally calm, cool and confident drivers into complete rank amateurs which of course has the overall effect of snarling traffic and bringing everything to a snails crawl thus turning a 5 minute drive into a 45 minute nail biting odyssey. About the only thing short of a collision that could make this worse is an ever increasing tummy rumble and not the slightest idea of what to make for dinner.

This recipe is one of those that is intended to fall into the Superman category—- you know, the one that saves the day—– and with its shear simplicity it does just that so it’s no wonder that I list this in the top ten of my “simple but tasty recipes for the grilling season and beyond”.

Here’s how we do this one………..


– One three to four pound pork loin

– One jar/bottle of honey Dijon or some other grainy type mustard

– Four or five garlic cloves

Putting it all together:

– Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees

– Using a paring knife create a hole in the pork

– Insert a garlic clove into the hole making sure it is buried completely

– Repeat until all the garlic has been used.

– Cover the pork with the mustard


– Bung it in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees

– Serve with your favorite side dish

As you can see this is one very “simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond” and one that I am sure you will really enjoy and will look forward to making again.

So until next time……….
