Maple Mustard Pork Loin

Post take two.  Fun story.  I had this entire post written and was adding photos and then somehow clicked away.  And lost everything.  E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.  It's been an unproductive day, I kind of needed the win from one item on the to-do list!

Meat in a crockpot is a simple dinner with minimal effort.  I use my crockpot surprisingly often for pulled pork, chicken, soups, and chili.  Every busy person needs a few crockpot recipes in their back pocket for easy and healthy meals.

While I was on the Whole 30 I really wanted sugar, not just candy and treats and things, but the ability to use sugar/sweeteners in recipes.  It not only adds flavor, but changes the texture of whatever you are cooking.  Limiting sugar in processed food is understandable, but a little maple syrup for as a flavor enhancer is a great idea!

For this month's Secret Recipe Club I had Loy of Grandma Loy's Kitchen.  She has a number of cookie recipes, desserts, and dinner ideas but I settled on this pork since I had some in the freezer.  It is so impressive that ladies of all ages are in SRC!

This pork loin is as tasty as it is easy to prepare.  The maple-mustard flavor is strong and delightful, while the pork is tender and moist.  This simple dinner is one that everyone should have ready to go, all you need is the pork in the freezer and the rest of the ingredients are pantry staples.  It's dinner time!
