2lbpork roast(shoulder or rump, trimmed of excess fat)
1/2cuplight brown sugar
2TbspDijon mustard(coarse ground recommended)
1/2tspeach, salt & pepper(to taste)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and grease your baking dish with either olive oil or a non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine the light brown sugar, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic, paprika, ground sage, salt, and pepper. Use a basting brush and coat the entire surface of the completely thawed pork roast (top, bottom, and sides) then place into your baking dish.
Roast in the oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 35 minutes, or until the internal temperature is 145 - 150 degrees F (63 - 66 degrees C). Remove the roasted pork from the oven and over with aluminum foil loosely, and allow the pork roast to rest for 15-20 minutes before serving.
*When roasting, the times may vary depending on several factors. Use internal temperature to ensure doneness.**Scale the recipe as needed to match the size of your roast. The roast used in our video was a 4 lb roast (recipe doubled) and roasted for 1 hr 10 min, rested for 20 min.
