Pork Roast With Sweet Balsamic Glaze
5 tablespoons dry mustard, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 pork loin or crown roast (4–5 lb)
1 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 tablespoons apple cider
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Line roasting pan with foil.
- Combine 3 tablespoons dry mustard, salt, pepper, and oil; rub mixture evenly over pork. Place pork in roasting pan (wash hands); roast 20 minutes to brown.

- While pork cooks, prepare glaze. Combine in small saucepan on low: remaining 2 tablespoons dry mustard, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, and cloves; simmer 7–8 minutes or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.

- Stir cider into remaining 2/3 cup of sauce. Slice pork and serve with sauce.
