Roasted pork loin with a touch of mustard

The exceptionally juicy pork loin from this recipe owes its unique flavor and texture to one ingredient - spicy mustard. It's this very ingredient that gives the dish its characteristic taste and helps maintain the juiciness of the meat while baking. The preparation is incredibly simple, and the end result delights the palate.


  • 2.2 lbs of pork loin,
  • 2 onions,
  • 3 cloves of garlic,
  • 2 teaspoons of hot mustard,
  • teaspoon of salt,
  • teaspoon of pepper,
  • teaspoon of sweet paprika,
  • teaspoon of dried marjoram,
  • tablespoon of freshly dried rosemary,
  • oil.

How to Prepare:

  1. To begin, we peel onions and garlic, and then chop them into small pieces. We sauté them gently in heated oil until they become soft and acquire a golden color.
  2. In a separate bowl, we mix 5 tablespoons of oil with marjoram, rosemary, paprika, salt, and pepper. We add sharp mustard and mix thoroughly, creating an aromatic mixture.
  3. Now we need to imbue the meat with this unique mixture. We rub it thoroughly into the pork chop, then place the meat into a heat-resistant dish for a gentle marinating process. We keep the dish with meat in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  4. After that time, we add the previously sautéed onion and garlic to the meat. We cover the dish with aluminum foil and insert it into a preheated oven warmed up to 356°F. We bake everything for around 2 hours, periodically checking if the meat is adequately baked.
  5. After removing it from the oven, we wait for the dish to slightly cool down. Then we cut it into slices and serve it with favorite sides.

Roast pork loin with the unusual ingredient of hot mustard is a real feast for the palate. It's a dish that combines traditional flavors with a touch of modernity. Now we can enjoy the unique taste of this juicy meat with family and friends. The preparation is simple, and the result will delight any gourmet.
