This Maple Mustard Pork Roast with cider vinegar and soy is sweet, savory and an easy dinner that's perfect for fall and winter!
If you're looking for an easy, quick-fix dinner, you'll love this delicious maple mustard pork roast! You only need six ingredients and minimal prep work to make this easy dinner, but the end result is amazing! Seriously, it's our new favorite pork roast recipe, and it's perfect for fall.
So, this is basically your average pork loin roast, except that it cooks in a glaze made with maple syrup, Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce and onions. The ingredients are simple, but wow, they get the job done! IN the end, you get a pork roast that's a little sweet, a little savory and incredibly delicious.
I found this recipe for maple mustard pork roast when I was going through my mom's old recipes. It was actually written on a deposit slip, which is a little unusual, but hey, whatever works, right?
The first time I made this pork roast recipe, I used the slow cooker. But this time, I used the oven. And as much as I love to make pork roast in the Crock-Pot, I think roasting it in the oven works better for this particular recipe. Both methods are good, though, so you can choose which one works best for you.
And even though the maple syrup and cider vinegar make this pork roast perfect for fall, you can enjoy it whenever you want, especially if you happen to live in a cooler climate. For us desert dwellers, though, this just screams fall comfort food!

I like to slice the pork roast after about an hour and let the pork slices just simmer in those delicious juices until we're ready to eat. This really locks in the flavor and keeps the meat extra tender and juicy.
The current guidelines for cooking pork recommend letting it rest for a few minutes when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees and then serving it. Personally, I like to let it go a little longer. It's strictly a personal preference, so you be the judge on this one, K?
Just pour on as much of that delicious maple mustard sauce before serving, and your family will love you forever! And friends, the leftovers are even better. I promise!

What if I dont have apple cider vin? Can I use a white vinegar?
You can use regular vinegar or apple juice, which would give it more flavor.

This Pork roast looks and sounds so delicious, thanks for sharing your recipe! I can't wait to fix it, and was wondering if you used a Pork Tenderloin?
Thanks so much, Elizabeth. I hope you like it as much as we do! This is a pork loin roast, but a tenderloin would be just as good. 🙂
