Apple Glazed Roasted Pork Loin is perfectly sweet and savory. Seasoned pork loin is roasted and then drizzled with the most amazing, delicious glaze—impress your guests or treat yourself!
Whether you’re looking for something new to make for Sunday dinner, or you need an easy and impressive dish to serve up for company, this recipe is super simple and perfectly delicious. The roast comes out juicy and flavorful with just the right balance between sweet and savory.
Cooking with pork isn’t too tricky, but the secret is in the meat thermometer. If you overcook it, which is easy to do, it will be dry. As long as you follow these instructions and get the internal temperature right, your roast will cook to perfection and the glaze will throw it right over the top! For a little added moisture and flavor, you can even cut up some apples and onions to place in your roasting pan.
- Can this be made in a slow-cooker? Yes. It is still recommended to sear the pork loin and season it the same. Place in slow-cooker and cook on low for about 4 hours or until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from the slow-cooker and let rest on a plate for 3-5 minutes, while you prepare the glaze.
- What is best to serve with pork loin? Like any roast, this one goes great with most traditional side dishes. We like it with salad and potatoes, either roasted or mashed. Cooked veggies like green beans and asparagus also go great, and don’t forget the rolls—they’re an easy win!
- What if I don’t have a meat thermometer? A meat thermometer is a wonderful device to add to your kitchen tool set. We recommend buying one. If you don’t have one handy, be sure to follow the bake time and not go over, which could result in a dry roast.

Apple Glazed Roasted Pork Loin
- 1 2 to 3 pound pork loin trimmed and tied
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season the pork loin with salt and pepper.
- Heat the olive oil in a heavy, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the loin in the skillet until all sides are browned, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
- In a small bowl, whisk together dijon mustard and apple cider vinegar. Brush over pork roast.
- Place skillet in the oven and cook pork to an internal temperature of 145 degrees, about 30 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the roast. Use a probe thermometer for accuracy.
- Meanwhile, make the apple glaze by melting the butter in a saucepan over medium high heat. Whisk in cornstarch until all specks of white are absorbed. Pour in apple juice and whisk in dijon mustard, brown sugar, and cider vinegar. Continue to whisk until sauce is thickened, which should only take a couple of minutes.
- Remove pork from oven and let rest about 5 minutes before cutting.
- Slice meat and serve hot drizzled with apple glaze.
