Looking for an easy recipe that comes out looking like it comes from a fine dining restaurant. This mustard crusted pork loin comes out juicy and tender and have a great golden brown crust that is packed with a herb and mustard flavor that complements the pork great. The pork takes about 15 minutes to prepare and an hour to cook.
In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the shallots and 1 teaspoon thyme and cook over moderate heat until shallots are soft, about 2 minutes.
Add the apple juice and reduce until about 1/3-1/2 of the liquid remains. Transfer to a bowl; whisk in the mustard and egg.
In a skillet, heat the remaining two tablespoons of butter, add the breadcrumbs, parsley, and remaining thyme. Cook until bread crumbs are golden and toasted. Remove and place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish or plate.
Season the pork with salt and pepper. Rub about 1/3 of the mustard mixture over the outside of the roast Heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the pork and sear over high heat until browned all over, 8 minutes. Most of the time, they have a string netting over two small roasts, I keep the netting on during this searing to only manage one vs two.
Transfer to a plate and remove the strings if used. Rub with the remaining mustard mixture and pat the bread crumb coating all over. Transfer the coated loins to a baking rack on a sheet pan.
Bake for 55-65 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 145-150 for medium rare, 150-155F degrees for medium and 165F degrees for well done. Let the pork rest for 10 minutes before carving.
