The rosemary flavor and fragrance is even more pronounced in this healthier version of Kathleen's recipe, because we used fresh rosemary rather than dried. We also added fresh carrots, potatoes, and fennel for a delicious and healthy meal!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Crush garlic with rosemary, salt, and pepper to make a paste. Pierce meat with a sharp knife in several places and press the garlic paste into openings. Rub meat with remaining garlic mixture and 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  3. Place the pork loin into a roasting pan and cook in preheated oven for 45 minutes, basting with pan juices several times. Add the carrots, potatoes, and fennel to the pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season with more salt and pepper. Continue to roast until pork is no longer pink in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  4. Remove roast and vegetables to platter. Pour wine into pan, and bring to a boil while scraping browned bits of food off bottom of pan with wooden spoon. Serve with pan juices.

I am only reviewing the pork loin part of the recipe. Very tasty and moist.

Excellent. Our local grocery store does not carry fennel, and I wanted the flavor added to it so I used a little fennel seed. I did not have any white wine so I did not use wine, could have used red, but decided not. The flavor was excellent with out any wine. I just made a regular gravy with the drippings, it was great. I will be using this recipe again. Thank you for a great recipe.
