What you need to make Honey Chipotle Glazed Pork Loin
Open Prairie® Natural* Meat Pork Loin. I used a 3lb loin
Spices for the dry rub: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste.
Chipotle pepper in adobo. I prefer the chipotle in adobo that comes in a can, but you can also find chopped chipotle peppers in a jar that had no seeds and are very mild. You can use the same amount of chopped chipotle peppers if you prefer.
Fresh Rosemary sprigs
Helpful Tips and Tricks
The best tip I can give you when roasting meat is to let the meat rest. Before you put it in the oven, let it rest on your counter until the chill from the fridge is gone, about 30 minutes. This is going to help the meat cook evenly. Also, let it rest for at least10 minutes after it comes out of the oven, so the juices re-distribute throughout the meat, and it stays tender and juicy.
1 chipotle pepper in adobo, seeded and chopped (use 1 tablespoon of adobo sauce for less heat)
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1.5 lb. baby potatoes
Fresh Rosemary sprigs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Take the pork out of the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before start cooking. This will take the chill out and help cook evenly.
Make the glaze: In a small mixing bowl add the honey, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, chipotle pepper, shallots, molasses, and soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper and whisk until well combined. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix all the ingredients for the spice rub.
Pat dry the pork loin and rub the spice mix all over the pork.
In a large heavy bottom skillet heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium high heat and sear the pork loin on all sides until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Make sure the fat side of the pork loin is up when finish searing.
Meanwhile in a separate bowl, toss the potatoes with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add the sprigs of rosemary.
Brush the pork loin generously with the chipotle honey glaze and arrange the potatoes around it. Transfer to a preheated oven and cook for about 45-50 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
While the pork loin is cooking, transfer the remaining glaze to a small saucepan and simmer for about 3-5 minutes until thick and glossy.
Transfer the pork loin to a cutting board and let it rest for ten minutes before slicing and serving. Pour the glaze over the sliced pork or serve on a side.
Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
