We enjoyed a relaxing & quiet holiday weekend, just the dh and myself. I enjoyed some much needed R&R,
took the bikes for a ride on the Sauk Rail Trail which goes from tree covered trail, to winding along marshland, to wide open Iowa countryside, to picturesque pastures filled with cows. The highlight of the ride was the sighting of a male bald eagle, perched in a dead tree in the wetland, keeping watch over the mother Canada geese and goslings below (was a bit nervous for the goslings)
grilled some great summer-time food.
Sharing with you today is a family favorite...
Grilled Mustard~Glazed Pork Loin
1/2 cup grainy mustard
6 tablespoons apple jelly
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 boneless pork loin roast (2 1/2 - 3 pound)
Whisk together jelly, sugar, oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in bowl. Reserve one-third of mustard mixture for serving. Coat meat completely with half of remaining mustard mixture.
I grill this on our Weber charcoal grill with the indirect heat method. Periodically brush with mustard mixture. Grill until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (approximately 1 hour 15 min). Take off grill and let set until temperature reaches 170 degrees.

Slice and serve with reserved mustard mixture. So yummy....enjoy!

Have a good day,

Your roast sounds so yummy. We haven't grilled in such a long time since there was only the two of us for quite awhile. Now that our son is staying with us, we may do some grilling because he likes to cook. I read your earlier post about your son and I had to chuckle a little because I have been in a similar situation. Moms aren't suppose to panic, but we all do as I keep telling mine we can replace vehicles, but we can't replace them. You have a wonderful day. A Missouri Friend
