Insanely Easy Pork Roast (Or Chops)

Total Time
2hrs 5mins
Prep 5 mins
Cook 2 hrs

I was playing around with ideas today and came up with this. So very good.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup maple syrup
  • 12-34 cup apple juice, depending on taste
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 (3 -4 lb) pork roast or 1 (3 -4 lb) pork chops


  1. Combine all into a measuring cup, blend with an immersion blender or beaters to combine the mustard really well into the other ingredients.
  2. Pour over a roast or chops.
  3. When making a roast, I line the pan with tin foil and wrap it around the top of the roast to keep the moisture inches
  4. Bake at 350 for roughly 2 hours, depending on size of roast and/or cut of meat used.

This was pretty good but when I made the marinade following the directions, the maple syrup overpowered everything. I wound up using a little over 1/4 c Dijon and added an extra teaspoon of garlic to get it to balance out. I agree with *Parsley* that apple cider would be a better choice for next time to cut the sweetness. I also think I'll cut back to 1/8 c syrup. Thanks for posting. It's still a pretty good pork roast!

Very good flavor. I used a little extra garlic and dijon mustard. I also added some crushed rosemary. I think apple cider would be a better choice than apple juice, but it was still wonderful. Next time I will try the apple cider. Thanx for sharing!
