Herb Roasted Pork Loin with PotatoesFeatured by Scott Cellars in the Pinot Noir Wine Club.
1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme
4 to 6 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon thyme
1 to 2 teaspoon freeze-dried or fresh chives
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
Rub pork loin with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, and 1 ½ teaspoons thyme. Then sprinkle the pork loin with salt and pepper. Place the pork loin in a shallow roasting pan. Slow roast at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 to 55 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel and quarter potatoes and cook in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Drain, let cool, and place potatoes in a large bowl. Toss with olive oil, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, chives, ½ teaspoons garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Place the potatoes around the pork loin, and roast an additional 45 to 60 minutes, or until pork registers at least 155 degrees Fahrenheit on a thermometer.
Cover roast pork loin with foil and let stand for about 15 minutes before slicing.
