Roasted Pork Loin

This is my first attempt and fortunately it turned out well. I know it looks ugly and not mouthwatering enough but trust me the flavor is so good. And the fact that I don’t have appropriate knife skill make the execution even worse. Ha! I really have no idea that cutting the pork loin into desirable thickness and shape would not be that easy.  Even this is more likely a western style dish, I had a delightful dinner by combining it with freshly cook rice. 🙂


Ingredients :

  1. 500 gr boneless pork loin
  2. garlic salt/rock salt
  3. rock pepper
  4. dry herbs (thyme, sage, rosemary, marjoram, basil and oregano)
  5. fresh lemon
  6. extra light olive oil

The Step by Step :

  1. Pour hot water to the pork loin
  2. Drain well and dry using clean towel or napkins (the same method with cooking the salmon)
  3. Mix all the seasoning as desired amount (salt, pepper, herbs and olive oil) then rub all over the meat
  4. Squash lemon and spread the juice evenly, leave
  5. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
  6. Place pork on a roasting pan and roast for 30 minutes
  7. Pour the juices from pork roasting into a bowl and set aside
  8. Cut pork cross side into desired thickness, pour the meat juice and place back into the oven for 10-15 minutes longer
  9. Arrange pork slices on plate and pour the leftover juice, serve


Important Notes : Oven characteristics may vary between one to another so it’s better if you adjust with your oven condition. I read that 145-150 C degree would be the perfect temperature. If you set too high temperature the meat will definitely be drier. I used fan oven and it usually takes about 20 degrees C lower temperature for gas oven.

Preparation : 15 minutes + Cooking time : approx 1 hour = 1 hour and 15 minutes 🙂

Have a nice week end and a happy tummy everyone!
