This recipe is one of my family's favorite. The pork always tender and fragrant.—DeEtta Rasmussen, Fort Madison, Iowa


  • 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 pork loin roast (3-1/2 pounds)
  • 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


  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, until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 70-90 minutes. Remove roast from oven; tent with foil. 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.
