Grilled Mustard-Glazed Pork Loin
We dress up pork roast by giving it a flavorful, deeply caramelized crust on the grill and serve it with a savory-sweet mustard glaze.
Why This Recipe Works
Two surefire ways to dress up a pork roast are to give it a flavorful, deeply caramelized crust on the grill and serve it with a savory-sweet mustard glaze. Our Grilled Mustard-Glazed Pork Loin recipe has the best of both worlds. Leaving our boneless pork loin roast untrimmed added moisture and flavor—and scoring the fat kept it from tasting too fatty. For the mustard glaze, apple jelly was a perfect complement to the spicy crunch of grainy mustard, and both married well with the other glaze ingredients—brown sugar, garlic, and fresh thyme. To fully infuse our Grilled Mustard-Glazed Pork Loin with mustard flavor, we applied the glaze before, during, and after grilling.
