boneless pork loin roast
to avoid the dryness that can accompany a pork loin or tenderloin,try this.. put 2 long pieces of foil in the roasting pan in a cross shape.i made slits in the loin(ABOUT 3.5 LB LOIN) and put slices of elephant garlic in them.mince any extra garlic and sprinkle around meat. crush dried rosemary and sprinkle on the meat with thyme,majoram and black pepper.wrap the foil tightly at the top horizontaly first and then vertically to really seal it. bake at 350 for 2.5 to 3 hrs. all the juices are locked in!!!!!!!
This was not that great. I followed the recipe exactly, even using fresh rosemary, but found the results lackluster. There was no gravy at all like in the picture, so don't expect any. I cooked it to an internal temp. of 160 degrees. I wouldn't say this recipe was bad just not worth making again.
I just wanted to share a tip with all those reviewers who used dried herbs and were disappointed. To reconstitute dried herbs put the desired amount in a small, very small container with a few drops of water. It should be barely enough to cover the herbs. Heat in the microwave for a few seconds, 10-20 maybe.Use the water in the recipe. It's a small amount but it will add flavor. That's it.
What a wonderful combination of herbs and spices! I coated my pork with a smidge of olive oil before rubbing with spices,let the meat stand on the counter to bring down to room temperture before cooking, and cooked in the rotisserie. It made a superb crunchy crust and just bursting with juices inside.I think it is very important to have a meat thermometer handy, as pork is horrible when too dry no matter what it is rubbed with! We cook ours until the internal temp. reaches about 150, take it out, let it sit, and the temp. rises a bit more, but not enough to dry it out.
To make this a complete meal, I doubled the ingredients as shown and then placed the roast into my slow cooker and added 1 cup apple cider on the bottom.
I then added some baby carrots, sliced red onion, and potato chunks into the same bag, added a little more salt and pepper, as well as some olive oil and shook the rest of the seasonings left over in the bag with the vegetables to coat them. I then placed the contents into the slow cooker as well. Cooking it on slow for 8 hours
This is excellent, but then I might be just a little biased as I've been eating pork roast seasoned like this all my life. I did modify this, based on my own experience making and eating it. Make little slits in the roast and insert slivers of garlic (rather than using garlic salt). Salt and pepper the roast and rub it with olive oil, then pat it with a mixture of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme (or just rosemary). While the roast is resting after cooking, deglaze the roasting pan with white wine and allow to reduce to a savory white wine reduction. If you prefer gravy, as Hubs did tonight, deglaze the pan with white wine or broth, then thicken with a slurry of cornstarch or flour, and broth. I like to start this out at 450 degrees fotr 10-15 minutes, then continue the cooking at the reduced temp of 350.
Another simple, yet outstanding recipe. I had no fresh rosemary, so I simply crushed some dried leaves. I also cooked the roast longer than recommended in the recipe. Pork roast needs 20-25 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. Also, I think the roast is juicier if you cover it during cooking. Enjoy!
I made this in the crockpot and like a previous reviewer, put some apple juice in the bottom of the pot. I put 1/2 cup apple juice, 1/2 cup veggie broth (I would have used all apple juice, but I needed to use up the broth). I used fresh basil and oregano instead of rosemary. Threw in about a pound of baby carrots, which turned out wonderful. Cooked for about 8 hours. It was so moist and tender, we loved it! Served with Creamy Au Gratin potatoes from this site. I have never made pork roast before but this inspired me to do it more often!
