  1. Pat pork dry with paper towel. In small bowl, combine all rub ingredients well and apply to all surfaces of the pork roast. Place roast in a shallow pan and roast in a 350 degrees F. oven for 1 to 1-1/4 hours (18 to 20 minutes per pound), until the internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove roast from oven; let rest until temperature reaches 160 degrees F, about 10 minutes before slicing to serve.

Quite good, word of warning however. There is a fine line between cracking peppercorn and grounding. Be careful, you don't want to leave the peppercorn so big that guests are cracking their teeth on it. But also you don't want to over-ground it to the point that the pepper becomes over-whelming, which with 3 tbs. of black pepper in this recipe its quite easy to accomplish (I upped servings to 12). Id recommend giving this recipe a dry-run before anything major. It has potential to be a very good home-made version of your "average" supermarket pork loin that comes with a pepper-herb coating, but mind your pepper.

I dislike rosemary, so I didn't add it. And after reading some recipes here I cut back on the pepper. I still didn't really care for it. I think it was the Parmesan that turned me off. It made a funky, crispy crust that seemed to conflict with the flavour of the pork. I liked the general idea of the spice mix. Just not the Parmesan.

Amazing! I halved the pepper like othes suggested. I placed it on a bed of onions and cooked for around and hour and 10 min for my 1.6 lb pork loin. I sprinkled the extra spices on the onions. I cut it about 3/4 of the way thru cooking to let some of the juices out. The carmelized onions were amazing and the pork had great flavor!

My family thought it was excellent. But we do like pepper a lot. I also put quartered potatoes and onions along side the pork to serve as a side dish which worked out well.

My husband loves anything peppered. Me, not so much. But with the blend of pepper and herbs this was amazing! Prepared it just as posted, but something was off with the timing. It took WAY longer than the stated amount of time. Could be something to do with the fact that I had a semi-boneless? Or is the 150 degree internal temp. correct? We'll figure it out, though, because we loved it! We will probaby add more garlic next time, too, because we love garlic!

Delicious! Roast stays tender and the drippings can be used sparingly for a bit more flavor (the drippings are strong in flavor). I served with rosted red potatoes and greeen beans - yummy!

The other reviewers aren't kidding when they say it's a lot of pepper! I cut the amount in 1/2 and it was still a little much. I also had to roast it for longer than the time called for, but that could have been an elevation issue...I will make this again, with an adjustment to the pepper.

My Family LOVED this!! I am VERY sensitive to any kind of spicy food so I thought it was a little too spicy. But is was very moist and Yummy!! Definitely something I WILL MAKE AGAIN!! :)
