This was one of the few times I broke my cardinal rule to follow the recipe 100% the first time. My roast was a 4lb pork loin. I took suggestions from several reviewers and cut slits in the roast & filled them with part of the garlic and fresh rosemary that I pressed slightly with the side of a small spoon to release the flavor & aroma. I then rubbed the roast with the olive oil & spread additional garlic & rosemary over it, along with some salt & pepper. I roasted it for 15 minutes at 450, then reduced the temperature to 300 for 90 more minutes, basting occasionally. It was amazingly tender, juicy and delicious! I made gravy with the pan drippings and served slow-cooker mashed potatoes, pesto tomatoes (both recipes from this site) and steamed broccoli sprinkled with freshly ground Parmesan. We had enough meat & potatoes for leftovers that we had with applesauce and a green tossed salad. It was just as good the second time around! Thank you, Stacy!
