This is my daughter's favorite meal and she always requests it for her birthday dinner. I give credit to my mother for teaching me to become skilled in the kitchen.

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (2-1/2 to 3 pounds)
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1-1/3 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 2/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  1. Cut tiny slits in the roast and insert garlic slices. Place roast in a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass bowl. Combine 2/3 cup of broth, lemon juice, oil, onions, bay leaves, thyme, salt and pepper; pour over roast. Seal bag or cover; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Place roast, fat side up, in a shallow roasting pan; pour marinade over. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 2 to 2-1/2 hour or until a meat thermometer reads 160°-170°. Remove roast to a serving platter; keep warm. Skim and discard fat from juices in roasting pan. Remove bay leaves. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pan juices. Add remaining broth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve with roast. Yield: 8-10 servings.

"I will use a little less lemon juice next time. I baked this in a small casserole dish and the juices kept it very moist."

"I agree about the tanginess, next time I would definitely cut down the lemon juice. Other than that, it smelled amazing while baking, tasted so moist, and the gravy recipe helped alot! I added some cream and sugar to the gravy to cut down the lemon flavour."

"This did turn out moist but WAY to tangy for my taste buds. That's a lot of lemon juice."
