For September, I was assigned Glenda's Blog Busy At Home. She has so many great tips and tricks for all sorts of things all over the house as well as great recipes. I chose to make her Maple Glazed Pork Loin. She prepped her's to freeze and cook in the crockpot. I did the same thing, but then discoverd my baby crock pot had a crack in the bottom of it, so I baked it in the oven instead. So I pulled the loin out of the freezer and allowed it to thaw and marinade before baking.This was such a great hit! My hubby enjoyed the mash up of all the flavors!
1.5 lb Boneless Pork Loin
1/2 cup BBQ sauce ( I used Kraft light)
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup
1/2 tsp orange extract
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 sweetner packets ( I used splenda)
Mix all of the ingredient, except the loin) until well combined. Place loin in a ziplock and pour the marinade over it. Freeze to cook in the crock pot, or bake later. Or you can allow it to sit in the fridge and marinade over night.
When you are ready to bake, preheat oven to 375. Spray an oven safe pan and pour the meat and marinade, coating the meat well. Bake covered for about 1 hour -1 hour 15 minutes. Uncover, baste and continue baking for another 15 minutes or internal temp is safe.
Allow meat to rest for about 10-15 minutes, then slice while still hot, allowing the chops to rest in the remaining marinade. Serve and enjoy!
