Reviews for Rosemary Pork Loin
"Loved this recipe! I used fresh garlic and rosemary - didn't grill - instead, I placed in a large ovenproof skillet (cast iron), browned in 1 tbsp of canola oil - then baked at 375* for 25 - 30 minutes until thermometer read 145* - let stand for 5 minutes before slicing."
"This recipe was tasty and tender as well as quick and easy. I plan on making this often."
