Balsamic Honey Lime Pork Roast

I love a good roast and a pork roast, when cooked right, can be very tender and juicy. I like that I have the option of throwing it in the crock pot to cook all day, grill, smoke or even bake up the roast. For this recipe I baked it, but the marinade can be used for any of the above methods.  

Balsamic Honey Lime Pork Roast

2lbs. Pork Sirloin Roast

1tbsp oil

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

2tsp garlic powder

2tsp onion powder

2tsp chili powder

2tsp paprika

1tsp pepper

1tbsp honey (I used Tupelo Honey)

1 small lime

Directions:

Whisk ingredients together and pour over pork roast. Let marinade for at least 20 minutes. (The longer the time, the more flavor.) If you plan on smoking or grilling, I would recommend letting the roast sit overnight in the marinade.  

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place roast in a roasting pan or oven safe baking dish, cover with remaining marinade, and bake for 1 hour.  

Remove from pan and let rest 5 minutes before slicing. I topped mine with a black bean and corn salsa (recipe below) and served with sauteed colored bell peppers.

   
 Black Bean and Corn Salsa:

1 can of drained black beans

1 can of drained corn

3 roma tomatoes diced

1 jalapeno diced

1 green pepper diced

1/2 onion diced

2 avocados diced

2 tbsp lime juice

Salt

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together, let sit in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour prior to serving.
