Are you ready for the unofficial end of summer this weekend? Are you having friends and family over for an end of the season cook out? Try this recipe for grilled pork roast and you will be surprised at the ease of grilling a roast instead of the tried and true oven. Marinating the pork is key but if you don’t have time to marinate overnight even an hour can make a huge difference in the tenderness and the flavor of the pork. Also after placing the pork on the grill keep your lid closed to allow the roast to cook thoroughly through. Use a meat thermometer and cook until pork reaches 145 degrees. Also when you take the pork off the grill try glazing it again with a little bit of the Dijon mustard. Let the roast rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
3-4 pound pork loin roast, boneless
1/2 cup Dijon-style mustard
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce
• Combine all ingredients in a large self-sealing plastic bag including the pork roast then the seal bag and refrigerate overnight ( you can also do a speed marinate of an hour)
• Remove pork from marinade (discard marinade) and place on medium-hot grill over INDIRECT heat(the second level of the grill is best)
