8 servings


  • 1 (2 to 2 1/2 pound) boneless pork loin roast (single loin)

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons dried sage, crushed

  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel

  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 20 to 24 tiny new potatoes (about 1 3/4 pounds)

  • 16 ounces packaged, peeled baby carrots

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Trim fat from meat. Stir together mustard, maple syrup, sage, orange peel, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the pepper. Spoon mixture onto the meat. Line a roasting pan with foil, if desired. Place the roast, fat-side up, on a rack in the shallow roasting pan. Insert a meat thermometer into center of the roast. Roast, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, peel a strip of skin from the center of each potato. Cook the potatoes in a covered large saucepan in enough boiling salted water to cover for 5 minutes. Add carrots; cook for 5 minutes more. Drain.

  3. Toss together the potatoes, the carrots, the olive oil, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place in the roasting pan around the pork roast. Roast, uncovered, for 45 minutes to 1 hour more or until the meat thermometer registers 155 degrees F. Remove the roast from the oven; cover with foil. Let stand for 15 minutes before carving. (The meat's temperature will rise 5 degrees F during standing.)

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
