Ready in 1 hour 35 minutes

An easy and delicious recipe from Market Street grocery and inspired by a pork tenderloin recipe from Rachel Ray. The herb rub makes a delicious crust, and the flavor of the rosemary, thyme, garlic and balsamic vinegar subtly infuse the entire roast.


1 pork loin roast; about 4 lbs.
3 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 cloves garlic; slivered
Kosher salt; to taste
Black pepper; coarsely ground; to taste
2 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves; stripped and finely chopped
2 sprigs fresh thyme leaves; stripped and finely chopped

Original recipe makes 16 Servings



1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Place the pork, fat side up, in a glass baking dish. Coat the roast with the balsamic vinegar, rubbing vinegar into the meat. Drizzle roast with the olive oil, just enough to coat it. Cut small slits all over the fat side of the roast, and insert garlic slivers into the slits.

3. Combine the salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme. Rub roast with the herb mixture.

4. Bake for 15-20 minutes per pound, until inside of the roast reaches 165 degrees F. Remove roast from oven, and wait 10-15 minutes before slicing.

OMG... so good.

I used my stainless steel grill pan in a dual convection oven. A two pound roast took just over 40 minutes.

Good recipe. My only changes are a 145 degree temperature because 165 is just too dry for me. Also minced the garlic and added it with the dry seasonings. I used dried thyme and rosemary because I was lazy but it tasted just fine.

This is so good! Delicious flavor, great color, what a helpful recipe for me, since I had a pork loin, but almost no other ingredients. I had to use dry versions of the herbs, but it still tastes amazing. I cooked my roast for an hour and 20 minutes at 350, I prefer low and slow to fast and hot.
