What You'll Need

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup mustard (see Tip)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups beer
  • 1 (3-1/2- to 4-pound) boneless pork loin
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, combine onion, mustard, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper; mix well. Stir in beer. Place pork in a large resealable plastic bag. Add marinade mixture, seal bag, and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.
  2. When ready to roast, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Pour marinade into a saucepan and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet over high heat, heat oil until hot; brown pork on all sides. Place pork in baking dish. Roast 50 to 60 minutes or until internal temperature is 150 degrees F.
  4. Meanwhile, to make a honey mustard sauce, bring marinade to a boil over medium heat for 5 minutes or until it thickens, stirring occasionally. Carve pork into 1/2-inch slices and drizzle with sauce.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I cooked the sauce even longer than suggested and it does not thicken, too much beer?

what is best to use instead of beer?

Use a non-alcoholic beer. You need the flavor of the beer hops to get the right flavor for the recipe. By the time the roast cooks you boil down the sauce to thicken it, the trace of alcohol in the NA beer will be effectively cooked off. Otherwise, sub in chicken broth some brewing hops added like an herb. But, the flavor will not be the same.

Hi Gina! You can use beef broth instead of beer. Enjoy!
