  • Oven
  • Tongs
  • Frying Pan
  • Small Bowl


  • 1 ½ tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 lbs Pork ribeye roast typically 2-3 pounds
  • 1 tsp Salt or 1 ½ teaspoons Kosher salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground Black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C) and heat a large oven-safe skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat with 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Season the 2 lb pork ribeye roast with 1 teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of black pepper. Sear the roast on all sides in the hot skillet until lightly golden, flipping with tongs, about 5-6 minutes in total.
  • While the roast is searing, mix 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a small bowl until well combined.
  • Once seared, brush about half of the honey Dijon mixture all over the roast. Place the skillet with the roast into the preheated oven on the center rack. Roast for approximately 20 minutes.
  • Remove the roast from the oven and brush the remaining honey Dijon mixture over it. Return to the oven and continue cooking for another 15-20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C).
  • Transfer the roast to a cutting board or serving platter, loosely cover with aluminum foil, and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure your pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) for optimal doneness. Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the roast to get an accurate reading. 
  • After roasting, let the pork rest tented loosely with foil for at least 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, ensuring it stays moist and flavorful when you slice into it.
