This simple recipe is to make a honey, mustard and brown sugar glazed pork loin or pork tenderloin.

We often buy a nice piece of pork steak here in Ireland as it is easy to cook and we can eat for two days from one large steak.

It is so simple – all you have to do is glaze the pork and put it in the oven. Then serve it up with some roasted vegetables that you put in the oven at the end of the oven cycle and BINGO! you are done!

Nothing could be easier.

Glaze Preparation

The preparation of the glaze is really soooooo easy. It is just a case of mixing the ingredients together and then using them to baste the meat every now and again to ensure it gets covered by the caramelizing glaze mixture.

I tend to baste the pork once or twice during the oven cycle, but the more you do it the better the glaze will be.

The advantage of this meal is that because it is so quick to prepare you can still have a simple pork roast dinner during the week which can be on the table in less than an hour, without too much actual time being involved in the preparation.

And if you have an air fryer you can make it even quicker.

So, prepare your glaze and vegetables, put the meat in the oven, pour a glass of wine and relax while your dinner prepares itself.

Just remember to baste now and again. It really could not be more simple.

French or English Mustard?

I use a Dijon mustard in the glaze mixture here, but you could also use a stronger English mustard if you prefer and wish to add a bit more kick.

Honey and mustard just goes so well together because of the mix of sweet and heat, and the brown sugar just helps the caramelizing process.

This glazed pork loin has a lovely sweet and savoury taste and adds some great variation to the taste of the meat.


  • 500g pork loin steak
  • 20g honey
  • 20g brown sugar
  • 10g soy sauce
  • 20g Dijon Mustard
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Mix all the ingredients except the pork loin in a bowl.
  2. Before cooking, pre-heat the oven to 190C.
  3. Season the meat with salt and pepper to taste. Then baste the pork loin well on all sides with the glaze mix before placing on a baking tray covered in tin foil.
  4. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes at 190C. Then turn the pork and baste again and put back in the oven. Repeat this process, re-basting every 20 minutes, until the pork is fully cooked. About 50-60 minutes for that size of pork loin.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before carving.


Slice the pork into pieces before serving.

Serve with some nice new potatoes and veg.

It would be very helpful if the measurements were in TSps, ozs., lbs. For those of us who live in the States. Otherwise, the recipe looks delicious. Thanks. Annette
