When you're tired of steak, fish or chicken, pork loins are a great alternative. Just as universal as chicken, this pork dish can be flavored any way you like.
Things You'll Need
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbs. dried rosemary
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 lbs. boneless pork loin
- 1/4 cup olive oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Crush garlic and combine with the rosemary, salt and pepper until a paste is formed.
Stab the pork a few times with a fork, so the meat will cook in its own juices.
Rub the meat with the garlic paste mixture and the olive oil.
Place pork loins in a large baking dish and cook for 2 hours. Turn after 1 hour of cooking, constantly spooning juices on top of loins.
Check the loins using a meat thermometer before removing from oven, as pork should be at 170 degrees F or higher. When they are done, remove loins from the oven and place on a platter.
Serve with juices from the pan.
Tips & Warnings
- These pork loins taste great with mashed potatoes and green beans.
- Use other herbs and seasonings of your choice for a different flavor.
- Cover with aluminum foil to retain more juice.
- Don't let the meat dry out. Using the juices will keep the pork loins tender.
