Mustard-Crusted Pork Roast and Browned Potatoes

Yield 8 servings
A mustardy glaze locks moisture in this pork roast. Rosemary potatoes roast alongside the pork, making a rustic side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 (4-to 5-pound) boneless pork loin roast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup coarse-grained mustard
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 pounds new potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Garnish: fresh rosemary sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Place pork in a greased roasting pan. Rub with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Combine mustard and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl; spread evenly over pork.

  2. Peel a crosswise stripe around each potato with a vegetable peeler, if desired. Cut each potato in half lengthwise. Toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Add to roasting pan around pork. Insert meat thermometer into thickest part of roast.
