Directions

  1. Tuck the fresh herbs under the roast's strings or rub the dried herbs on the meat. Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the roast and brown on all sides, about 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 375° F. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper. Place the skillet in the oven and cook 1 hour and 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 155º F in the center of the roast.
  3. Remove from oven. Cover loosely with foil and let rest 15 minutes to allow the meat to finish cooking. Skim the fat from the pan juices and discard. Spoon the pan juices over the sliced meat.

Quick Tip

Charcoal grill
Mild and tender, pork loin and tenderloin work well with many cooking methods―roasting, pan-searing, grilling, sautéing. Tougher (and less expensive) cuts, like shoulder and butt, are best suited to slow cooking and braising.

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
