Rosemary Pork Loin

I started growing rosemary in my garden after I discovered this pork recipe. My husband and I think it’s restaurant quality, and we look forward to making it after work. —Judy Learned, Boyertown, Pennsylvania

    An amazing recipe! This was a huuuuuge hit with the family and friends. Easy to make and easy to grill! Used dried rosemary, although I'm pretty sure that fresh rosemary would have made it even more amazing. This dish is a dream!

    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.
