Pork Loin Roast
With a handful of ingredients you can have this incredible Pork Loin Roast that's perfect for a weeknight meal, yet fancy enough for your holiday dinner or parties!
- 4 pound pork loin
- 6 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
- 1 teaspoon pepper or to taste
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon rosemary fresh, minced
Preheat your oven to 375 F degrees and arrange the rack in the middle of the oven.
Drizzle the olive oil over the pork loin. In a small bowl mix together the garlic, salt, pepper and rosemary. Rub this all over the pork.
Cook the pork for 45 to 60 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork reads anywhere from 145 to 160 F degrees.
Transfer the pork roast to a cutting board and let it rest for at least 15 to 20 minutes before cutting into it.
The best way to tell when your pork is done is to take its internal temperature using a meat thermometer that's inserted in the center part of the pork and the temperature reads at least 145F/62.8C to 155F/68.3C.
If you don't own a meat thermometer, pierce the pork in the middle with a fork and if the juices run clear, the meat is done.
Tip: Transfer the pork roast to a cutting board, cover it with aluminum foil and let it rest for at least 15 before cutting into it.
