Herb-Crusted Pork Roast

There is nothing like a well-seasoned pork roast, pan-seared and baked to perfection. The moist meat gets a flavor boost from a cheesy herbal crust and simple reduction sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 bone-in pork loin roast (4 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs

  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup white wine or chicken broth

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the ground mustard, herb seasoning, salt and pepper; rub over roast. In a large skillet, brown roast in 2 tablespoons oil. Place roast fat side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush top with Dijon mustard. Combine the bread crumbs, cheese, basil, thyme, rosemary, garlic and remaining oil; press onto roast.
