Apricot and Mustard Glazed Pork Roast
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped (or 2 teaspoons dried), divided
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper, plus more to taste
1 & 1/4 pound pork loin, center-cut
2 tablespoons apricot preserves
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 pound fingerling potatoes
1 teaspoon olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a roasting pan with nonstick spray.
2. Stir together the garlic, one tablespoon of the rosemary (or 1 teaspoon if using dried), 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture over the pork. Place pork in the roasting pan.
3. In a large bowl, place potatoes, remaining rosemary, 1 teaspoon olive oil, salt and pepper (to taste). Mix well to coat. Add potatoes to roasting pan around the pork. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
