I don’t know about you, but any time I make a roast of any kind it kinda feels “fancy” to me.
Maybe that is a throwback to my childhood.
The only time my Mom made a roast was when we had company.
Is that the same for you?
I know even as I was raising my own family it kinda seemed that way. That roasts were reserved for company, or Sunday dinner.
Now I love them because they are so dang easy! Just a few ingredients, pop them into an oven, and BOOM you have a tasty meal that everyone will love.
I even love leftovers, which I never did before! And hubby loves making sandwiches the next day.
So it seems like roasts are a win/win for everyone involved right?
Once I adapted my Honey Mustard Sauce to low carb I knew it had to happen with a pork roast, and a loin roast is my fave. I love grabbing a couple at Costco and keeping them for a night when I just want a comforting “homey” kind of meal.
This Honey Mustard Pork Loin (Keto & Sugar-Free) recipe fits that to a T!
A few ingredients, into the oven, tasty food, with yummy leftovers.
How can you go wrong with that?

FAQS ABOUT HONEY MUSTARD PORK LOIN (KETO & SUGAR-FREE)
Can I use a pork tenderloin instead of the loin?
I have only made this with the loin but yes, I am sure you could use tenderloin in it’s place. Just be aware that the cook time will be shorter so monitor the temperature and pull it out when it reaches 140 degrees F. Tent with foil and allow the tenderloin to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
I thought pork needed to be cooked to 165 degrees F.
Yes, in the past the USDA guideline was that pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. That was due to the possible presence of trichinosis, a microscopic parasite. However, trichinosis has been eradicated in our domestic pork so you can now safely consume pork cooked to lower temperatures.
How should I store the leftover bacon wrapped honey mustard pork loin?
Store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. You can reheat the leftovers in the oven or microwave.
