Rosemary and Sage Pork Loin

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!
