Found this recipe online. It is quite different from any pork recipe I've tried but oh so good!! I find 1/2 the recipe is enough for 2-4 people.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180°C.
  2. Cut six 1-inch slits across roast.
  3. Place a cooling rack on a large rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Place bacon on rack.
  4. Combine maple syrup, Dijon mustard, rosemary, salt and pepper. Brush with basting mixture.
  5. Bake in centre of oven for 25 – 30 minutes and baste with remaining mixture.
  6. Bake for 50 - 60 minutes, or until a thermometer registers 130F/55°C.
  7. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing.

Five Stars. I made this for part of a Sunday brunch for a large number of cottagers and people were asking me for the recipe. I cooked this on the barbecue using indirect heat. I placed the roast on a foil pan on the "off' side of the grill and basted it frequently with the sauce. It took about an hour and 15 minutes. The roast sliced beautifully. A nice alternative to pan fried peameal and certainly much easier if you are cooking for a large number of people.

This was amazing! I've used a similar recipe before, but for whatever reason, this combination makes the grade. It's so basic yet such a wonderful blend of flavours while hot and as a leftover. My husband said: "You can make this anytime..." Thanks for sharing! Michelle, Bellevile

Excellent recipe. I wanted to try something different than just frying and this is a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe.
