Name: Boneless Pork Loin Roast with Herbed Pepper Rub



Yield: Serves 6-8, with leftovers.

Comments: 5 minutes prep, 90 minutes cook.
11/2/2010 - I followed the directions on the meat package, and roasted the meat at 325ºF for 25 min/lb. The roast weighed 2.61 lbs so the total roasting time was about 66 minutes.
5/08/2011 - The roast weighed 2.42 lbs. I cooked it 20 min/lb at 350ºF; after 48 min I used the meat thermometer to find the internal temperature was 180ºF. I used the amount of spices for a 3 lb roast & cracked 2 tablespoons peppercorns with the motor&pestle; that might have been too much pepper.
11/28/2016 - I started with a 3-pound roast. I modified the seasonings by using 4 teaspoons of plain black pepper, just 1 teaspoon of rosemary, a full teaspoon of garlic & herb seasoning and, of course, no salt. The recipe gave about twice as much rub as I needed. I put a meat thermometer in the roast at the beginning and cooked it about 73 minutes before it reached 150ºF. I removed the roast from the oven, but the internal temperature did not go up to 160ºF, so I put it back in the oven again for about 10 minutes. I think the roast turned out well.
