Preheat oven to 500°F.
Sprinkle pork liberally with salt and pepper. Add mayonnaise and Dijon and rub into the outside of the roast.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, paprika, coriander seeds, garlic powder and a few rosemary leaves. Grind or mix together, then use to coat pork.
Add water, cinnamon sticks and star anise to the bottom of the roasting tray. Place pork on a rack positioned above bottom of roaster.
Place pork in oven to sear. Once there's some good color, pull the meat out, and lower the temperature to 350°. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 130°F. Remove pork and let rest for at least 10 minutes. Slice and serve!
