Every recipe that I put on The Hungry Wife website has received the seal of approval from my family. However, every once in a while a recipe comes along that completely blows our socks off! And this is one of them. Vermont Maple Syrup Pork Roast is the perfect combination of sweet with a little bit of spice, and a super moist roast. Using real maple syrup is a must when making this recipe. I don’t think you can beat real maple syrup.
Contrary to what many believe, pork can actually be good for you. Lean cuts of pork, like loin or small roast used in this recipe, are similar in fat to skinless chicken breasts. This makes for an excellent alternative, if you find yourself eating boneless, skinless chicken breasts at almost every meal, you can add some variety to your menu by cooking up some pork and still get the low fat benefits. You can even make this with boneless pork chops, those would be excellent also.
Not only does Vermont Maple Syrup Pork Roast taste amazing, and is good for you, but, it is also extremely easy to make. This is a perfect weekday meal that will have your family raving.
