This only requires 5 of the staple pantry foods and 5 minutes of preparation time, here is the recipe for your brown sugar and Dijon glazed pork loin, which is both high in protein and low in calories!
- 1 tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
- ½ tsp Salt
- dash of Pepper
- 1-3 lbs. Pork Loin
- Mixed Vegetables
Preheat your oven to ideally 425 degrees.
Stir the mustard, sugar, salt and pepper into a small bowl
Line a rimmed baking tray with tin foil or cooking parchment. Spray the dish with spray-on olive oil to avoid the meat sticking and make for easy cleanup. Leave some excess sugar to sprinkle on your vegetables later.
Place the pork on the baking sheet, patting down the excess moisture with a tea towel.
Chop and prepare some apples (optional).
Surround your pork with the vegetables of your choosing. Make sure to baste them in oil first.
Baste each side of your pork loin with the mustard and sugar mixture. Make sure it is thick enough so that it doesn’t dry out during baking.
Bake the pork for around 30 minutes.
Take out the pork and sprinkle the vegetables with the spare sugar. Also, add the chopped apples to your cooked vegetables at this point.
Replace the pork loin and vegetables back in the oven and cook for another 30 minutes or until your temperature probe reads 145-degrees.
