I have been organizing our freezer and found a pork loin roast! What a treat! Don’t let fancy roasts intimidate you! They are rather easy, and if you are starting out with high quality meat it is hard to mess it up! I roasted it at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes a pound and it came out with a crispy seasoned skin and juicy meat. The secret is lots of salt and pepper, and herbs are optional if you have pastured flavorful pork.
Roasted Bone-in Pork Loin
- 1 Bone-in Pork Loin Roast
- lots of salt and pepper
- dried or fresh rosemary (optional)
Roasting pan with rack
- Bring the pork roast to room temperature. Let rest outside of the refrigerator for at least an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Liberally rub the roast with salt and pepper. If you want to use rosemary, now is your chance!
- Place the seasoned roast in a roasting pan with a rack. Use a meat thermometer insert it so that it is in the center of a meaty part away from a bone.
- Roast for about 30 to 40 minutes per pound; you want the roast to reach an internal temp of 170 degrees. If the roast is small, around 40 minutes per pounds roast is better.
