This roast pork loin and potatoes is a snap to prepare. Serve with a vegetable side dish and your favorite salad for an extra-special meal.

 

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 4 to 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon freeze-dried or fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
Rub pork loin with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme, then sprinkle with salt and pepper; place pork loin in a shallow roasting pan. Roast at 325° for 50 to 55 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel and quarter potatoes; cook in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Drain, let cool, and place potatoes in a large bowl; toss with olive oil, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, chives, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and salt and pepper. Place potatoes around pork loin; roast an additional 45 to 60 minutes, or until pork registers at least 155° on a thermometer.

Cover roast pork loin with foil and let stand for about 15 minutes before slicing.
Serves 8 to 10.
