🍴 Recipe Tips
When making this pork roast with mustard sauce, you can use jarred minced garlic for the sauce (I do). But having the sliced cloves in the meat is nice because 1- it looks pretty and 2- roasted garlic close taste awesome, so it's like a nice treat.
Your pork will be finished cooking when the internal temperature is a minimum of 145F degrees. It may still be pink inside as this is considered rare for pork, but try not to exceed an internal temperature of 165F degrees because then you risk it being overcooked and dry. No one liked dry pork.
With the sweet and tangy sauce on this pork roast, it pairs really great with fresh green salads or an Italian flavored side dish like green beans. You can also pull from the sweetness aspect and serve it with some baked beans as a nice change of pace. It can be served with just about anything and feel complimentary.
With a general rule of thumb of cooking your pork roast for 20-25 minutes per pound you can expect your roast to be cooked within 1hr to 1.5 hrs. Please note that oven times and temperatures do vary, so keep an eye on our thermometer, it will tell you when it's safe to eat.
Pork shoulder is great for cooking and slicing into like a roast, giving you nice firm and juicy slices. A pork butt can be used in place of a shoulder for this recipe, but pork butts are generally better at becoming pulled pork because of the higher fat percentage.
