Honey Roasted Pork Loin

My local grocery store often has great deals where you buy a certain amount of meat and get so many items for free.  A while ago I purchased a 2.6 lb pork loin in one of these deals and was having a heck of a time deciding on how to prepare it.  I came across this recipe and absolutely loved it!

2lb pork loin
salt and pepper to season
1/4 cup honey
2tbs orange juice
2tbs olive oil
1/2tsp thyme
1/2cup chicken broth

Preheat oven to 375
Season pork loin and place in baking dish
In a small bowl combine honey, juice, oil, and thyme
Pour honey mixture over pork
Add broth to pan
Bake for approximately 60 minutes basting frequently.  Until internal temp of pork reaches at least 150 degrees.
Strain juices from baking dish into a sauce pan.
Reduce over medium/low heat to a syrup.  
Serve syrup over sliced pork.

My son is a crazy picky eater and he loved this pork.  It is perfect for a weekday dinner with some steamed veggies and mashed potatoes!
