pork loin roast
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
This recipe was so simple that I kept on passing it up - didn't seem much different than a lot of other roasts that I make. Well I was wrong - this gets 5 stars along with some of my other pork favorites! Made no changes other than to put the seasonings on the meat and wrapped the meat in plastic wrap for a few hours
(I do that with a lot of my roasts if I have time so that
the flavor seeps in). I also put slits into the roast and inserted slivers of garlic in the slits (which I always do
with pork roasts - my preference). I decided to follow
Vini's cooking directions exactly and my 3 lb. pork
roast was cooked PERFECTLY!!! Just slightly pink - as
it should be!! Soooooo moist. Also decided to make
the gravy as Vini suggested rather than doing it my
way which is work intensive and sometimes can be a
disaster if you are cooking other things at the same
time. Vini's gravy was EXCELLENT - Novice chefs will
love his recipe for gravy - you can't go wrong! Since it
was Columbus Day and everyone had to work except
for me I made this roast and all the trimmings -
mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, Stove Top Pork
Stuffing, Asian style green beans, the last of the
summer tomatoes, and apple sauce. Well we feasted that night - and just like Thanksgiving - we enjoyed the leftovers the next night since the meat remained so moist! Thanks Vini!
i bought a pork shoulder butt roast (yeah i know that sounds like an oxymoron or whatever) at the grocery store and was just looking for some simple seasoning recipe that i could do quickly with stuff i had. i looked at this and 'herb roasted pork loin and potatoes'. i put the sage in a bowl and smelled it and it just smelled like thanksgiving stuffing, so i added onion powder, garlic powder, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper until the seasonings smelled good, then i rubbed it all over the meat and cooked it at 350 for 30 mins per pound. when it was done i immediatly wrapped it tightly in foil and placed it on a dish in the microwave while i finished everything else. *****the tip i have for the gravy is to mix the water and cornstarch in a salad dressing shaker then add to the drippings, that way your gravy has no lumps!!!***** i served this with homemade mashed potatoes and sliced up apples into a frying pan with some butter, brown sugar and lemon juice (i read that on the other recipes suggestions) oh with some dinner rolls and a salad this was one of the best meals ever! i will use a pork tenderloin next time but oh my god! this is now a family favorite!!!
Vini, I don't know how you came up with this recipe... but we think it is most definitly 5 star. I had a 3.25 # roast and checked at 90 minutes, and it was to right temperature. We are cutting carbs so I left out the cornstarch and went for some more flavoring for a "gravy". I added some broth and some red wine vinegar and boiled it a few minutes with the left over juices and added water. I served by slicing (very important to let it "rest" for about 10 minutes before slicing) into 1/2 thick slices and pouring the thin sauce over and letting it set in the juices covered in a warm oven while I made side dishes. Wow! moist and great flavor. Thank you, for probably the best recipe I have tried(And I have tried QUITE a few) on this website.
We thought this was excellent. I was running late and didn't make the gravy, but it was delicious without. I will definitely make this again (next time with the gravy). I also added some potatoes to the pan to roast along with the pork.
Probably the best pork loin recipe I have ever tried. My family claims that there isn't a restaurant anywhere that could make it taste better!
One of the best pork loins I've made. Save yourself an "outside" piece. The spices form a delicious crust which counterpoints the meat and is just fabulous. I followed the roasting instructions to the "T." My four pound roast finished in almost exactly two hours and the inside meat temperature was 160. The meat was a little pink on the inside, which I fixed with a brief stop in the micro. The gravy was simply tremendous--like I knew exactly what I was doing (I didn't have a clue). I served this with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, available on this website, Bavarian sauerkraut, garlic bread sticks, and tossed salad with homemade blue cheese dressing. You bet I deserve a medal!
Extremely,extermely salty.Besides that very good.Will try again with less salt.
I loved this! I rated a 4 due to the salt. Next time, I will cut amount in half. But that just affected the trim of the roast. I almost skipped the gravy because I was so hungry & in a hurry but glad I didn't. (I don't know what browning sauce is so that didn't make it in.) Even though the pork was tender, it added just the right amount of flavorful juiciness to boost the meat. Easy & my fiancee was "wowed!" Paired with easy mashed pots & buttery spinach with mushrooms/tomatoes made a Sunday-best meal. Thanks Vini!
