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


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



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