Thyme & Basil Roast Pork
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 1 hour + standing
We love this recipe and make it at least a couple times a month! The pork loins I get are usually only around a pound and a half so I halve the seasoning and add a little additional salt and pepper to the outside of the roast before I put it on. We like ours rare so we only cook 20-25 Minutes. This turns out beautifully every time!
This is a great recipe! I never thought about using cinnamon in a pork rub. I was pleasantly surprised at the taste...slightly spicy. The apple and onion kept the pork wonderfully moist while it roasted. The lemon is an interesting ingredient; reminded me of picatta, a bit. It's definitely a keeper recipe. Thanks!
My family loves this roast. Only thing I did different was I put it in my crock pot. It turned out so juicy and tender. The herbs formed a delicious crust around the meat. I served potatoes seasoned with thyme and basil, steamed asparagus and apple sauce.
