Great to have during the fall months when the weather outside is crisp.

An amazing way to prepare a roasted pork loin. It's easy enough to make any day of the week, but fancy enough to serve on a special occasion. Dijon mustard adds a touch of tanginess and the crust is crisp. The pork loin is tender, juicy, and slices like butter. We really enjoyed the creamy peppercorn sauce. There's a bit of peppery spice but it's not overpowering. If you're sensitive to peppercorns, you might want to cut back on them a bit.
