Maple Mustard Sauce for Pork
Cut the vegetables any way you like, toss in olive oil, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Roast in oven at 400F for 20 minutes.
Maple mustard pork is a rich and savory dish. Adding a little acid to a rich and savory dish is often times a good idea. So adding a salad on the side would accomplish this and also get your body more vegetables. I did a simple cucumber and red onion salad with olive oil and white vinegar. Add lemon juice instead of the vinegar if you want to make it a little healthier. Lemon juice has many benefits including it being a good source of vitamin C.
Take your pork to the next level
When cooking pork loin or pork chops there is a simple technique you can do to make your pork more juicier and more flavorful. It’s called brining. Brining is soaking your meat in a flavorful liquid. Usually the brine will consist of salt, sugar, water and some other flavoring ingredients. This technique is used to enhance texture, add flavor and add moisture. The recommended amount of time can be between 30 minutes to 4 hours. Depending on the size of your meat, you can soak your meat in the brine longer if you choose, but you do risk the meat losing its moisture due to the salt in the brine. If you haven’t tried this, it is a must to add to your cooking arsenal of techniques to impress. Try this quick brine recipe from the Kitchn as a starting point.
