We’ve had pork roast a number of times, but this was the first time making the dish myself. I wanted something simple. Hmmm… Do I see a pattern here? With a good cut of meat, you don’t need to do much with it. Add a little oil and some spices, and let the main ingredient shine!
- 2 lbs pork loin, boneless (or 3-4 lbs bone-in)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 tbsp light butter, melted
- 1/2 tbsp fresh sage, minced (or slightly less for dried herbs)
- 1 tsp fresh rosemary, minced (or slightly less for dried herbs)
- Preheat oven to 375°F (or 160°C).
- Whisk together olive oil, garlic, butter, and herbs in a small bowl.
- Place the pork on a backing rack (optional) ins a large pan and rub the herb mixture over the pork, making sure you cover all sides and crevices.
- Roast, uncovered, in the oven for one hour.
- Once removed from the oven, let the meat rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.
- Optional step: Pour juices from the pan over the pork before serving.
