pork-loinTO MAKE:

  1. Preheat oven to 175° C or 350° F.
  2. Crush garlic with rosemary, salt and pepper, making a paste.
  3. Pierce meat with a sharp knife in several places and press the garlic paste into the openings.
  4. Rub the meat with the remaining garlic mixture and olive oil.
  5. Place pork loin into oven, turning and basting with pan liquids.
  6. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour.
  7. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 63° C or 145 degrees F.
  8. Remove roast to a platter.
  9. Heat the wine in the pan and stir to loosen browned bits of food on the bottom.
  10. Serve with pan juices.

Note 1: You can also rub the pork loin with the paste, then put it in a ziploc bag and put it in the fridge for a few hours to marinate.

Note 2: Throw in some cut up vegetables with the loin (carrots, onions and celery) and pour about 1/4 cup of wine in the bottom of the pan. Roast for about 1½ hours covered, and everything will be perfect. Scoop out the veggies, and then use a can of chicken stock and some cornstarch to make a gravy out of the pan drippings.

Note 3: Serve with buttered herb rice.

  1. I make a pork loin with low sodium teriyake sauce; throw the roast into the crock pot, along with the teriyake sauce and a potato and an onion (both covered in foil). cook on low for 10 hours. the pork loin falls apart when finished!

    spouse then takes leftover pork and mixes it with BBQ sauce, grabs a wrap, throws cut up onions/peppers into the wrap with the BBQ pork.
