We got our first snowfall this past Saturday, and we will now put our grill away for the winter. Continuing the theme of easy comfort foods for when we enjoy having our ovens on, the recipe below is for a delicious, moist, and very easy pork roast.
ROAST PORK LOIN WITH GARLIC AND ROSEMARY Serves 8.
Preheat oven to 425º. Combine the following ingredients in a small bowl:
* 4 large garlic cloves, pressed
* 4 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or 2 teaspoons dried
* 1-1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
* 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 3 tablespoons olive oil
Rub mixture all over a 2-3 pound boneless pork loin roast. Place the pork, fat side up, in a roasting pan and roast the pork until a thermometer inserted into the center registers 150º, about 50-60 minutes. Remove roast from the oven and let stand 10 minutes. Slice pork crosswise into 1/3 inch pieces; arrange on a platter, and pour pan drippings over the meat. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and serve with applesauce.
