Ingredients

  • 3 lb pork loin
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted

For Rub

For Honey Garlic Glaze

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup pineapple juice or orange juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
  • In a small bowl whisk together all the rub ingredients together. Sprinkle the rub over the entire surface of the pork pressing firmly to get everything covered.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter. Place the pork loin in the skillet and sear the pork over high heat on all sides until nicely browned.
  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast uncovered for 70 to 80 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork is at least 145 F° to 150 F°.
  • Meanwhile, in a small saucepan melt the butter over medium heat then add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds until aromatic. Add the honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, pineapple juice to the saucepan, whisk well and bring to a slight boil.
  • Whisk the cornstarch with the water and add the slurry to the saucepan. Whisk until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • When the pork has reached the desired temperature remove the skillet carefully from the oven and baste with the honey garlic sauce. Place the skillet back in the oven and broil it on high for 3 additional minutes, or until the sauce caramelizes.
  • Let the loin rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing it and serving. Serve with leftover honey garlic sauce.

Notes

  1. To keep this pork loin fresh in the fridge, store it in a shallow airtight container or wrapped tightly in aluminum foil and it will keep for 3 – 4 days.
  2. If you’d like to make this pork loin ahead, you can store it in an airtight container or in freezer bags with the air pressed out for 4 – 6 months. Allow the roast to thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating in the oven at 350 F degrees till the pork is heated through.
