Recipe by Irmgard
This recipe was in last month's Canadian Living and it looked so good, I had to try it. And believe me, it is good! I used another type of white wine since I am not a white wine drinker, I didn't want to go out to buy another bottle just for a recipe. It still turned out great. The leftovers make a wonderful sandwich.
- 1 cup riesling wine
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 lbs boneless pork loin roast
- 8 ounces shallots
Directions See How It's Made
- In a dish large enough to hold the roast or in a large resealable bag, mix together 1/4 cup of the wine, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, oil, grainy mustard, garlic and pepper.
- Add the pork and turn to coat.
- Cover and refrigerate, turning once, for 1 hour.
- Cut the shallots into 1/2" thick pieces and place in the roasting pan.
- Top with the pork and drizzle with the remaining marinade.
- Roast in a 325 degree F oven, basting two or three times with the pan juices, until the juices run clear when the pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, or the meat thermometer registers 160 degrees F, about 2 hours.
- Reserving the pan juices, transfer the pork and shallots to a serving platter.
- Tent with foil and let stand for 10 minutes before slicing the pork thinly.
- Place the pan over medium heat and bring the juices to a boil.
- Add the remaining wine.
- Cook, stirring and scraping up any brown bits on the bottom of the pan, for 2 minutes.
- Mix the carving juices into the pan juices and spoon some over the pork slices.
- Serve the remainder on the side.
