Wendell's Herbed Pork Roast


Wendell found the recipe for this pork roast here. Do you see the cut-off portion in the lower left corner? That's the bit I ate and went "OMG, so ono!" and ran to get my camera.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary leaves
  • One 4-pound pork rib roast cut from the loin end, chine bone removed
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a small bowl, blend the garlic with the olive oil, thyme and rosemary. Rub the herb paste all over the pork roast and let stand at room temperature for 2 hours or refrigerate overnight. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 500°. Set the pork in a small roasting pan and season with salt and pepper. Roast the pork for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 325°. Continue roasting the pork for 40 minutes longer, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat registers 155°. Transfer the pork to a carving board and let stand for about 10 minutes. Cut between the ribs, transfer the chops to plates and serve.

I've been away from the computer these past few days (won't get one for home until I retire), and have to say I loved your photo of your teeth brushing! You are a precious, hilarious, kind-hearted soul, and I so love reading your blogs! I also love Wendell's recipes!

I'm not too much of a meat eater, Susan. With me it's the carbs.
