Maple Pecan Pork

(1 Votes)
50 Min

We got this idea while we were eating a pecan roll. We were thinking that it tasted so good we wished we could have it for dinner. Well, we think we succeeded in making a main course that tastes just as good! We're also pretty sure it will become one of your most requested pork loin recipes!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 (2- to 2-pound) boneless center-cut single pork loin
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, lemon juice, salt, and pepper; mix well. Rub 2 tablespoons of mixture over entire pork loin. Press pecans into pork, coating all sides. Place pork in prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake 35 minutes. Remove pork from oven and pour remaining syrup mixture over it. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until juices run clear.
  4. Cut pork into 1/2-inch slices and serve with pan drippings.



Walnuts are just as good as pecans here, or if you prefer, you can skip the nuts and make it just maple-flavored.

Was this meant to be a "pork tenderloin" or a pork loin?
