    Sweet and Savory Pineapple Pork Loin

    Share

    My Sweet and Savory Pineapple Pork Loin recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, a wonderful weeknight meal or perfect Saturday dinner to share with friends! Pineapple is such a great ingredient to cook with and works so well with Asian food.

    It’s a great compliment to the pork, and when it’s cooked down in the pork juices as the loin bakes in the oven, it becomes deliciously syrupy and rich with meat juices. Blended with honey and mustard, it’s the perfect sauce to pour over the meat when you serve it, sticky and sweet, but with a good kick from the mustard to balance out the flavors.

    So, how to make Sweet and Savory Pineapple Pork Loin?

    Steps to make Sweet and Savory Pineapple Pork Loin

    1

    Heat the oven

    5

    Preheat the oven to 400°F.

    2

    Make the marinade

    1

    In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard and pepper.

    3

    Brown the pork loin

    5

    Place a skillet over a medium-high heat and heat until sizzling. Add the pork loin and cook for around 5 minutes, turning every so often, until browned all over. Place the pork in a baking tray or leave on the skillet.

    1

    Pour the honey mixture over the pork and spread it until fully coated.

    Bake the pork

    40

    Cover the tray with aluminum foil and put in the oven to bake for 5 minutes, before reducing the temperature to 375°F and cooking for a further 30-45 minutes until cooked through. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145°F.

    7

    5

    Remove the baking tray from the oven and leave the pork to rest for 3-5 minutes.
