to avoid the dryness that can accompany a pork loin or tenderloin,try this.. put 2 long pieces of foil in the roasting pan in a cross shape.i made slits in the loin(ABOUT 3.5 LB LOIN) and put slices of elephant garlic in them.mince any extra garlic and sprinkle around meat. crush dried rosemary and sprinkle on the meat with thyme,majoram and black pepper.wrap the foil tightly at the top horizontaly first and then vertically to really seal it. bake at 350 for 2.5 to 3 hrs. all the juices are locked in!!!!!!!

This recipe was basically a good one, but I lowered the heat to 325 degrees and cooked for 1 hr. and 30 minutes in a glass baking dish. Baked uncovered for 15 min, and then covered with aluminum foil. Came out perfect - melt in your mouth! Read More

I just wanted to share a tip with all those reviewers who used dried herbs and were disappointed. To reconstitute dried herbs put the desired amount in a small, very small container with a few drops of water. It should be barely enough to cover the herbs. Heat in the microwave for a few seconds, 10-20 maybe.Use the water in the recipe. It's a small amount but it will add flavor. That's it. Read More

What a wonderful combination of herbs and spices! I coated my pork with a smidge of olive oil before rubbing with spices,let the meat stand on the counter to bring down to room temperture before cooking, and cooked in the rotisserie. It made a superb crunchy crust and just bursting with juices inside.I think it is very important to have a meat thermometer handy, as pork is horrible when too dry no matter what it is rubbed with! We cook ours until the internal temp. reaches about 150, take it out, let it sit, and the temp. rises a bit more, but not enough to dry it out. Read More

This is excellent, but then I might be just a little biased as I've been eating pork roast seasoned like this all my life. I did modify this, based on my own experience making and eating it. Make little slits in the roast and insert slivers of garlic (rather than using garlic salt). Salt and pepper the roast and rub it with olive oil, then pat it with a mixture of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme (or just rosemary). While the roast is resting after cooking, deglaze the roasting pan with white wine and allow to reduce to a savory white wine reduction. If you prefer gravy, as Hubs did tonight, deglaze the pan with white wine or broth, then thicken with a slurry of cornstarch or flour, and broth. I like to start this out at 450 degrees fotr 10-15 minutes, then continue the cooking at the reduced temp of 350. Read More

To make this a complete meal, I doubled the ingredients as shown and then placed the roast into my slow cooker and added 1 cup apple cider on the bottom. I then added some baby carrots, sliced red onion, and potato chunks into the same bag, added a little more salt and pepper, as well as some olive oil and shook the rest of the seasonings left over in the bag with the vegetables to coat them. I then placed the contents into the slow cooker as well. Cooking it on slow for 8 hours Read More

I made this in the crockpot and like a previous reviewer, put some apple juice in the bottom of the pot. I put 1/2 cup apple juice, 1/2 cup veggie broth (I would have used all apple juice, but I needed to use up the broth). I used fresh basil and oregano instead of rosemary. Threw in about a pound of baby carrots, which turned out wonderful. Cooked for about 8 hours. It was so moist and tender, we loved it! Served with Creamy Au Gratin potatoes from this site. I have never made pork roast before but this inspired me to do it more often! Read More

Another simple, yet outstanding recipe. I had no fresh rosemary, so I simply crushed some dried leaves. I also cooked the roast longer than recommended in the recipe. Pork roast needs 20-25 minutes per pound at 350 degrees. Also, I think the roast is juicier if you cover it during cooking. Enjoy! Read More

This pork roast had a great flavour. I made a rub out of the spices with 1 tbsp of vegetable oil. I didn't use fresh rosemary because I didn't have any so I just used a smaller amount of dried rosemary. I cooked it in the slow cooker on low for 8 hours. It was very tender. Read More

Delic-i-ous-o!! I subbed in garlic granuals with dried parsley for the garlic salt..that would have been way too much for my palate. I also followed other suggestions and seared it in olive oil before rubbing on the seasoning and baking covered for at least half the time. Regarding cook time mine was 1.5 pounds and only took one hour. Like I said this is wonderful and will be one of my regular recipes! Thanks Marianne! Read More
