Herb and Mustard Roasted Pork Roast

I cannot take 100% credit for this one, it was actually inspired by a diner near me. They do a roasted pork chop with a Djion butter sauce. I loved the taste so much, I figured out how to make it at home for my family. It was an instant hit for Sunday dinner or family gatherings. If you wanted to use this on a weeknight, go ahead just use pork chops instead!

Full time 45-60 minutes
Serves 4-6

You will need:

1 1/2 to 2 lb. pork roast
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp whole grain Dijon mustard
1/2 tbsp chopped sage
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 dried thyme

Let us begin:

Preheat your oven to 350' and place the roast into a baking dish. Pat surface dry with a paper towel and drizzle across the olive oil. Season surface with salt and pepper.

Bake roast in oven for 35-40 minutes or until it reaches 160' on a meat thermometer.

While the pork begins to roast you will want to get the butter sauce ready. In a small bowl mix all ingredients until well combined.

Stick this in your freezer until your ready to use it, it will begin to congeal, this is what you want it to do.

Once pork reaches and internal temperature of 165', remove it carefully from oven and pour butter sauce lovingly across the top of it.

Return to the oven cook for an additional 8-10 minutes or until it reaches 170' on a meat thermometer.

Remove from oven, slice, serve, and cheers!
