Roasted Pork Loin with Mustard Crust

This was a staple growing up in my house as a kid. It is super easy but don’t let easy fool you into thinking it is not tasty.  It is also not very expensive to feed a large number of people because pork loin is much less expensive than the tenderloin and healthier than red meat. I love using this or a similar approach to cooking both pork and lamb.
