Baked Pork Loin

This juicy baked pork loin recipe can be easily altered to your taste. I used a variety of different herbs and spices with a dominant garlic and herb flavour. In order to lock-in moisture, the secret is to sear the roast before you bake it. You also want to be careful not to over cook so baking to an internal temp of 145 F is perfect. Save the drippings and make a wine infused reduction to drizzle on top.


INGREDIENTS:

2.5 LB Pork Loin


For the Dry Rub:

1 Tbsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Onion Powder

1 Tsp Dry Parsley

1 Tsp Dry Basil

1 Tsp Salt
