In the Oven

Pork Roast Tuscan Style

Ingredients:

  • 3 lb Canadian Pork Loin Roast, boneless
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp5 coarse salt
  • 1 tbsp dried rosemary, crumbled OR
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped rosemary
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp canola oil

Cooking Instructions:

With a sharp knife, make a slit lengthwise through the centre of the pork loin. Open a hole by rotating the knife or using the handle of a wooden spoon. Mince garlic with salt; combine with rosemary, Italian seasoning and pepper. Stuff the opening with most of the garlic mixture. Rub the outside of the roast with oil. With a sharp knife, make a crosshatch pattern on the top surface of the roast. Rub remaining garlic mixture over the surface, pressing into slits. Roast at 325ºF (160ºC) to an internal temperature of 155-160ºF (68-71ºC). Remove from oven, cover loosely with foil; let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
