"This is a microwave recipe for small cuts of pork loin (1 to 2 lbs). This is a great recipe for college students who don't have a regular oven in their rooms."

  1. Pat the pork roast dry with a paper towel and perforate the meat at 1 inch intervals with a knife or fork. Insert leaves of rosemary in the perforations.
  2. Place the onion halves into a glass 9 or 10 inch pie plate. Set the meat on top of the onions so they act as a roasting rack. Pour the water over the meat and season with salt, pepper, thyme, and cumin.
  3. Cook in the microwave at full power for 16 minutes (or about 8 minutes per pound). Turn the roast over and cook for an additional 6 minutes or until the internal temperature of the roast has reached 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Let the roast rest for about 15 minutes before carving and serving.

Not just for college students. I tried it with a 3lb loin and it was fantastic.

My husband and I have enjoyed this several times. IT IS DELICIOUS. I broke our stove/ burners right before Thanksgiving and for weeks we have been using the microwave to cook our meals. I am gra...
