Pork Loin Roast Recipe for the Oven

My pork loin roast recipe is one of the many ways to cook this thick lean cut of pork. When looking for an alternative to pork chops, or a meal the whole family will enjoy, this is a great way to make your dinner a success.

Pork Loin Roast Recipe

Creating a great pork loin requires a savory base and mouth watering rub. Using a little oil on the pork helps it retain moisture so the meat is juicy and cooked to perfection.

When I make my pork rub, it's pretty much different every time I do it. I have a variety of herbs and spices in the cupboard that I glance over and make my decision on which ones to use on the fly.

Please try this recipe and let me know how it goes. If you are a pork lover, know you will love it.

Preparations for the Pork Loin Roast

Mix all of the dry ingredients except the Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade in a small bowl. Apply a thin coat over the entire pork loin so the whole cut of meat has a shine, but is not dripping.

Sprinkle the dry rub ingredients generously over the entire pork loin and pat in with your hand. Ensure the rub is applied to the entire loin. Place the loin on a cookie sheet.

Baking the Pork Loin

Turn on the broiler at high heat. In five minutes, place the cookie sheet with pork loin in the oven and to braze the meat for four (4) minutes. Carefully flip the loin on the cookie sheet and braze for an additional three (3) minutes or until meat is brown and sizzling.

Remove the cookie sheet and set the oven temperature to 325 degrees. Move the brazed pork loin to a three (3) inch deep dish/pan. Open and lightly sprinkle a small portion of the Brown Sugar Bourbon Marinade packet over the top of the loin. Mix the remainder of the packet with one (1) cup of water and pour the liquid in the dish/pan around the pork loin. Cover the dish/pan with aluminum foil and place in the oven for one and a half (1 1/2) hours.

Remove dish from the oven and let it rest for ten (10) minutes. Cut and serve the baked pork loin.
