About the Cooking Method: Roasting

COOKING BASICS: 1) Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F. (for pork tenderloin, roast at 450 degrees F.). 2) Trim much of the exterior fat from the roast; if roast has no fat cover, rub the surface with 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil. Season roast with herbs and other seasonings, if desired. 3) Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. 4) Do not cover; place in oven and roast to an internal temperature of 150 to 155 degrees F. for medium doneness. 5) Remove roast from oven. Allow it to "rest" for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing. This resting period allows juices to redistribute. Internal temperature will rise approximately another 5 degrees F.

Tips and Tricks

Buying, Handling & Storage Tips

Loin roast is sometimes confused with tenderloin. Despite the name similarity, they are not one in the same. A loin roast is typically sold in pieces weighing between 2 to 4 pounds (the tenderloin is a smaller, long cut that usually weighs about a pound). The term roast simply refers to a large cut of pork.

Butcher's Tips

This was a great recipe! Instead of using dried herbs I used fresh and added a little olive oil to the mix. It was hit at dinner with no leftovers!

Delicious and moist

Super moist and so tasty!

I prepared this recipe for a special dinner with my family. The pork was so tough it was horrible. The rub was delicious and smelled wonderful. If only the pork would have tasted half as good as it smelled! So disappointing. Think the cooking temperature should have been higher than 350.

Wonderful roast
by anonymous 09/06/2013
I would make this again. Turned out perfect. I love the pepper on the edges!

 I made 4 pound roast and it came out perfect. Tender at the new temperature of 145 degrees internal temperature. The seasoning was great too. Made great slices for sandwiches the next day.

 My family loves this dish. It's great because the herbs are all in the pantry anyway, too!

the ingredients are great.

I am glad I read Lisa's comment and consequently cut the pepper in half. It was still plenty spicy, but delicious.

by Andrea 04/23/2010
My kids were turned off by the pepper around the edges, but my husband and I loved it. Once the rub was prepared and on the roast, it was a very low-maintenance dinner and I plan to make it again soon!

Simply Delicious
