Herb roasted pork loin

19 Jan

A very simple recipe for a delicious, flexible roast. Serve with roasted veggies and rosemary green beans, or slice for sandwiches. Plan on one pound for three people.

1 pork loin, tied in twine
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
Seasoning mixture

Seasoning mixture:
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp salt

Heat a large frying pan over high heat. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Rub the roast with a olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning mixture untill well-covered on all sides.

Put the roast in the heated pan. Cook for 30-45 seconds on each side, or until the meat on the outside changes color from pink to white.

Place the roast in a baking dish and put in the oven. Bake until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove from oven and cover with aluminum foil. Let sit 15 minutes. This will allow the roast to keep cooking a bit, but also reabsorb the juices. Cut off the twine before serving.
