  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • ½ cup dry sherry

  • 2 tablespoons mustard powder

  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (4.5 pound) boneless pork loin roast - trimmed, rolled, and tied

  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce


  1. Stir 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup sherry, mustard powder, thyme, garlic, and ginger together in a large, shallow bowl. Place pork roast into marinade and cover; refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight for best flavor, turning occasionally.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
