Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • pork loin roast, bone in, about 5 pounds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, mixture, such as rosemary, thyme, sage, marjoram, savory
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ******
  • Potatoes:
  • 2 to 2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, cut in 2- to 3-inch chunks
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation:

Heat oven to 450°. Combine the herbs, 1 teaspoon crushed garlic, bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. I usually put everything in the food processor to chop finely and save time.

Put the roast in a lightly oiled roasting pan. Pat the herb and bread crumb mixture all over the roast. Roast for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° and roast for another 45 minutes.

Toss the potatoes with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, the 1 teaspoon crushed garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Arrange the potatoes around the pork and continue roasting until the pork registers about 165° on a meat thermometer or oven probe. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

Serves 6.
