Honey Mustard Pork Roast

I have a bad habit of writing blog entries and then procrastinating on actually posting them.  This is one I just came across:  

Instead of going with the traditional ham or lamb for Easter dinner, I opted to try a pork roast and was thrilled with the result.  This is a delicious entree that is so moist and ridiculously easy.  It looks and tastes like you spent way more time on it than is actually required.  ;)

1/4c honey
2 TBSP coarse ground Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1 TBSP + 1 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary

2-3lb. pork roast
2c water or chicken broth

1.  Preheat oven to 350*

2.  Combine first six ingredients in a small bowl.  Coat roast evenly with the mixture.

3.  Place on rack in a roasting pan and add about 2c water or chicken broth to bottom of pan.

4.  Bake, uncovered for approximately 1 hr - 1 1/2 hrs. or until internal temp. reaches 155*

5.  Remove and allow to stand 10 min. (temp. will continue to rise) before slicing and serving.
This would be fantastic any time of year!
