This Herb Roasted Pork is one of my family’s favorites because of the flavorful rub and how tender the meat comes out. I love it because it takes minutes to prep and then the oven does all the work. It does have a long cooking time (1-2 hours), so keep that in mind when adding it to your meal plan. This spicy Herb Rub would taste great on chicken, too, if you’re not a fan of pork! With the warmer weather upon us, it’s time to switch from the oven to the grill, and this recipe should transfer well. Just make sure you use a thermometer to check that your pork reaches a safe cooking temperature.
- 2 lb Boneless Pork Loin Roast
- 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsp basil
- 2 tsp rosemary
- 2 tsp thyme
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Rinse the pork loin and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Combine all the spices and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl and combine to make the Herb Rub.
- Apply to all surfaces of the pork roast and place in shallow pan (I use a 9x12).
- Roast in oven for 1-1.5 hours (approximately 20 minutes per pound), or until temperature reads 145 degrees.
- Remove roast from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
I’ve been buying a four-pack of boneless pork loin roasts from Costco since they’re priced at $1.99/lb. Between this, the Slow Cooker Pork Ragu & Fettuccine, Pineapple Pork Chops, and Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches I’ve got a whole month’s worth of pork meals in my rotation.
