Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1 (4-pound) boneless pork loin, with fat left on
    1 tablespoon salt
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves
    1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves
    1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary

Directions

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Place the pork loin on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. With your fingers, massage the mixture onto the pork loin, covering all of the meat and fat.

Roast the pork for 30 minutes, then reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast for an additional hour. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests.

    This has become one of our household favorites. I add mustard and honey to the rub, then I cook it in the slowcooker on high for about three hours. I always add carrots, potatoes and onions. This is a no-fail recipe. I've made this for company and they loved it too. - 7/8/09

    The calories on this are way off. Pork Tenderloin was used in the calculation instead of Pork Loin which is higher in fat and calories. Substituting 4 lbs of loin in for the tenderloin brought the calories (assuming you still only get 10 servings out of 4 lbs) over 300 per serving. - 1/26/10

    The whole family enjoyed it! I had a 1.25 pound pork tenderloin and halved all of the ingredients except the salt (used 1/3 the amount called for), and it was PERFECT! Thanks for the excellent recipe. - 12/7/10

    So easy to do! My family very much enjoyed this flavor-filled entree! I used garlic-infused olive oil and just went wild with all the herbs & spices we like. It's been requested for a future dinner! Thanks! - 9/14/08
