Seasoned Pork Loin
This is a great “set it and forget it” recipe for a seasoned pork loin. It’s a great dish for any family meal, and you can really use any variety of spices you’d like!
- 1 pork loin roast, 3 to 4 pounds
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 3 crushed cloves)
- 1 teaspoon onion powder (or 1 finely diced onion)
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 2 teaspoon thyme
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Combine the spices together in a small bowl or baggie. Rub the pork loin on all surfaces with the spice mixture. Let marinate to room temperature on counter or place back in refrigerator for up to 4 hours. Bring to room temperature before cooking.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Once the pan is screaming hot, gently set pork loin in the skillet and let sit for 3-4 minutes until a nice brown crust has formed. Gently pick up the roast and check for brownness. Rotate pork loin a quarter turn and repeat until all sides have been browned.
Place pork loin in a foil lined roasting pan. Roast at 325° for 75-90 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 155. Remove from oven and tent with foil.
Let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
Serves 8 to 10.
