Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin
This recipe sounded too good/easy to be true-but decided to go for it because I had a pork loin and couldn't think of anything else to do-plus I had all (mostly) ingredients on hand. It was quite possibly the BEST pork loin we have ever eaten! Perfectly cooked, very moist and juicy, and flavorful. Definitely a keeper in this house. I even went and bought another loin to have on hand as I have a feeling will make again sooner rather than later. Now for the variations I used after reading many reviews... We don't use steak seasoning but did have some Cajun Tiger Dust which I used in place of - it's basically same as steak seasoning but with a kick. I added a little honey (~1/4 cup) to the marinade. After reading up on marinating faster (an oxymoron but it worked!) , I "poked" the loin in several places with a paring knife as I needed to get on the table. Because I wanted to make it a meal, I thick sliced and onion (med size), cubed 4-5 red potatoes and sliced ~ 2cups of baby carrots in half, tossed all with the marinade, nestled the loin with the veggies and cooked to 150*. Wanted to put veggies back in oven for ~15 minutes but had hungry boys standing with plates ready to devour so turned out more like 10. Sliced the pork about 1/2" thick and served over a mound of the veggies. The sauce was phenomenal (we LOVE balsamic)-boys kept dipping forkfuls in dish for more "gravy!" One of the best meals I have enjoyed in a while and so simple.
