Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Servings: 4


Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest


1 1/2 pound New York (top loin) pork roast, boneless, trimmed of external fat
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg yolk, beaten
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped

Cooking Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place panko on large dinner plate; set aside. Pat surface of pork dry with paper towels; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine egg yolk, mustard and thyme in pie plate. Roll pork roast in mustard mixture, spreading mixture evenly on surface. Then roll mustard-coated roast in panko, patting panko on roast to evenly cover.

Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, in heated oven for 30-45 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted near center reads 145 degrees F. Loosely cover pork with foil. Let rest for 5-10 minutes.

Transfer pork roast to carving board; Cut half of the pork roast into 1/2-inch-thick slices to serve. Cool remaining piece of roast at room temperature for up to 1 hour. Loosely cover and refrigerate for sandwiches.

Serves 4 with leftovers for sandwiches.

Serving Suggestions

About the Cooking Method: Roasting

COOKING BASICS: 1) Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F. (for pork tenderloin, roast at 450 degrees F.). 2) Trim much of the exterior fat from the roast; if roast has no fat cover, rub the surface with 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil. Season roast with herbs and other seasonings, if desired. 3) Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. 4) Do not cover; place in oven and roast to an internal temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F. for medium doneness. 5) Remove roast from oven. Allow it to "rest" for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This resting period allows juices to redistribute. Internal temperature will rise approximately another 5 degrees F.

Tips and Tricks

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Loin roast is sometimes confused with tenderloin. Despite the name similarity, they are not one in the same. A loin roast is typically sold in pieces weighing between 2 to 4 pounds (the tenderloin is a smaller, long cut that usually weighs about a pound). The term roast simply refers to a large cut of pork.
