Savory Pork Loin Roast Recipe

This recipe is one of my family's favorite. The pork always tender and fragrant.—DeEtta Rasmussen, Fort Madison, Iowa
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 70 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon each minced fresh basil, rosemary and sage
  • 1 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 whole pork loin roast (3-1/2 pounds), trimmed
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup brown gravy mix
  • 2-1/2 cups beef broth
  • 1-1/4 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, garlic, herbs and mustard; rub over roast. Place on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Pour water into the pan.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, 70-90 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°). Let stand 15 minutes before slicing.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute onions in butter until tender. Combine gravy mix and broth until smooth; stir into pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir until thickened. Stir in sour cream and horseradish; heat through (do not boil). Serve with pork. Yield: 8 servings (2 cups sauce).
