Roast Pork Loin with Garlic and Rosemary Crust

This recipe is so easy and very flavorful. Absolutely my favorite way to prepare a pork tenderloin. Simply rub a pork loin with a paste made of garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper and then bake. Pork tenderloin is an excellent lean meat. 3 ounces has only 122 calories, 3 grams of fat yet provides 22 grams of protein.

The secret? Do not overcook the pork.

One 2 1/2-pound boneless pork tenderloin well-trimmed

6 large garlic cloves, pressed I prefer to use the chopped garlic in a jar from Costco
4 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or 2 teaspoons dried
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt – I prefer to use Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 13 x 9 x 2-inch roasting pan with foil. Mix garlic, rosemary, coarse salt and pepper in bowl. Place pork in the roasting pan. Rub mixture all over pork.

Roast pork 20 minutes. Then take the temp. Continue to roast until thermometer inserted into center of pork registers 145°F. Remove from oven; let stand 3 minutes. Cut pork crosswise into 1/3-inch-thick slices.

Leftovers for the week!
