Roasted Pork Loin with Rosemary
- Original recipe
- Makes 6 servings
- 1½ pounds (675 g) boneless pork loin roast
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and mashed
- ½ tablespoon (7.5 ml) chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon (1.5 ml) salt (optional)
- vegetable cooking spray
- ⅓ cup (80 ml) dry white wine
- rosemary sprigs for garnish (optional)
- With a sharp knife, make slits in the pork every inch (2.5 cm) or so at regular intervals.
- Combine the garlic, rosemary, olive oil, pepper, and salt (if using) in a small bowl.
- Rub the mixture over the roast and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- Before you are ready to roast the pork, preheat oven to 400°F (220°C, gas mark 6).
- Spray an oven proof roasting pan with cooking spray and place the roast in it.
- Roast until an instant-reading meat thermometer registers 160°F (71°C), about 1¼ hours, basting once.
- Transfer the pork to a warmed platter.
- Keep warm.
- Pour off any fat in the roasting pan.
- Deglaze the pan with wine and reduce over high heat, scraping up all the cooked bits, until the wine is reduced by ⅓.
- To serve, slice in thin slices and spoon the wine sauce over the slices.
- Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
