What is a Pork Ribeye Roast?

This is one of my favorite cuts of pork because it cooks well and has the most amazing flavor. A ribeye roast is a cut that comes from the rib area of the loin. This area is a bit fatty and this is what makes it so delicious and flavorful.

How To Make Mustard-Maple Pork Ribeye Roast

When the pork is brown, transfer the pan into the oven. Depending on the thickness of the meat, the pork roast should take about 30 to 45 minutes to cook or when the juices run clear and the temperature is about 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.

Place the same skillet over medium-high heat (CAUTION, the handle will still be hot!), add the vinegar. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits with a spatula or spoon, about 30 seconds.

Next, whisk in syrup and the remaining 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, thyme, and rosemary. Bring the sauce to a boil again, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the sauce is thick; about 5 minutes.

Slice the pork roast into ½-inch chunks. Serve the pork topped with the sauce.

    Made this tonight. This is a great recipe as written. I skipped the browning step, but otherwise followed exactly. It turned out really good. The sauce took it to another level. Served with braised cabbage with apples and roasted potatoes. Great meal. Love your blog and facebook posts. Thank you.

  • “pork roast should take about 30 to 45 minutes to cook or when the juices run clear and the temperature is about 145 degrees F”

    The thermometer in your photo reads 190ยฐ. Not an encouraging sign…

    • Hi Ed! I’m sorry you don’t feel encouraged to make this delicious recipe. This photo was taken before I started using digital thermometers by Thermoworks. The thermometer in the photo within this post was more than likely touching the bottom of the pan. It’s hard to hold a thermometer in a 450-degree oven and take a picture. This photo was merely for illustration. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Let me know if I need to clarify anything else. I’ll be happy to help you! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Debbie — I apologize for prejudging this recipe based on one unfortunate photograph. Your recipe and procedures seemed sound enough so I gave it a try, the only deviation being that I brined the pork in a standard salt, garlic and herb solution (1/2 cup salt, 1/2 gallon water) for five hours before patting it dry, adding the mustard and pan-searing it. I usually brine my pork (chops and loins and “country-style” ribs) to compensate for its lean nature.

        I placed the seared roast into a preheated 425ยฐ oven and took it out when the thermometer read 135ยฐ, knowing that it would gain another 10 degrees or so during the 20-minute rest. My target was 145ยฐ. I made the sauce per your instructions but found that it was a little too thick, so I added a couple ounces of chicken stock that I had on hand and this kept the reduction from becoming too thick and syrupy.

        Long story short — it was fantastic! A big hit among the diners. We all had seconds. The pork was juicy and a little pink in the center, just as it should be for this cut.

        I would like to add one more thing: your gracious response to my somewhat callous comment is a credit to your character. I will be making my pork “ribeye roast” this way from now on. Thanks!

      • Ed, I really appreciate your critique, but mostly admire the fact that even though you were skeptical, you still tried the recipe. I work really hard to share our recipes with others. Nothing is perfect, but I can guarantee that the recipes you find here on our site are good. I’m glad you liked the recipe. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts and for trusting us to make the recipe! ~ Debbie
