Roasted Pork Loin
I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com. I read the reviews & tweaked it according to my preferences & others suggestions.
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
1-2 cups of carrots, chopped
1-2 cups celery, chopped
1 cup onion, chopped/diced
Combine the garlic, rosemary & about 1/8 cup of olive oil to make a paste. Rub it on the loin & marinate it for a few hours.
Preheat the oven to 350. Bring the pork to room temperature and then line the bottom of a 9x13 pan with the carrots, celery & onions, placing the pork on top. (I buy the 2 pack of pork loins at Walmart & used both for this recipe, was 2 1/2 lbs total)
After about 40 minutes turn & baste the pork. Will be fully cooked after about an hour- hour & 1/2. Take out of the oven, cover with foil for 10 mins.
Then take the pan drippings & mix with a little broth & cornstarch to make a nice gravy. yum.
I paired this with roasted potatoes. 6pts for the pork, 3pts for the potatoes.
