Herb-Crusted Pork Roast Recipe

Publisher Photo
There is nothing like a well-seasoned pork roast, pan-seared and baked to perfection. The moist meat gets a flavor boost from a cheesy herbal crust and simple reduction sauce.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2011

This crusted pork loin is truly delicious. To perfect the recipe, I add 1 egg york and 1 teaspoon of milk powder into the marinating mixture. It will improve the adhesiveness of the crust and won’t fall apart easily as we slicing it. This tongs is useful for turning the pork.
