Maple-Glazed Pork with Roasted Vegetables

We’ve enjoyed this maple-glazed pork recipe a few times, and the original recipe is from the Kraft Canada website. I’ve changed it from 12 servings to 4 servings – that’s enough for us, with leftovers for lunch the next day.

Also, I added more details on the preparation and cooking steps, so it’s easier for us to get organized!
