    Yay to a yummy roast! We have a pork loin I have to bake tomorrow. I've been on Pinterest trying to figure out what to do. I've never cooked a pork loin before, just chops. Wish me luck! I haven't been on much lately. I try to keep up on the reading. I read this threat and it makes me hungry! Lol! Now I want some German chocolate cake!

    I make pork loin roast all the time. I use garlic, rosemary, thyme, basalmic vinegar and olive oil. Salt and pepper also. Mix all ingredients in a ziplock bag. Add roast, seal bag and massage marinade into roast. Let sit for 15 minutes to overnight. I found a Cherry Basalmic Vinegar - my new favorite for pork. And I dice red and sweet potatoes, season with rosemary, garlic, olive oil and then roast. Yummy supper!

    Good luck with your pork roast.

    @sunflour , I'd like to see it. Share please!

    DH does most of the 'real' cooking here. I do a lot of the soups, salads, and sides, all the deserts and baking. Works out well for us.

    Good to see you @Alice28 , good luck with your pork loin!


    Your roast sounds good. And the roasted potatoes, love those!

    Hmm, wonder why all of a sudden some type of roast sounds good?

    Sounds like we have them trained quite well…lol.

    This is from The Georgia Cookbook by Bill Ragan - have never tried one of his recipes I didn't like.

    Beef Roast in Foil

    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp pepper
    3-4 pound beef roast
    1 TBS favorite steak sauce ( we used Worcestershire Sauce )
    3 TBS dry onion mix ( DH said he just tossed some on it)
    1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup

    1 - Sprinkle salt, pepper on roast. Rub or apply steak sauce and place in a foil-lined pan. ( tear the foil large enough to wrap roast.
    2 - Sprinkle onion soup mix over the meat and then the COM soup on top.
    3- Wrap tightly in the foil and BAKE at 325 F for 3 hours.


    It was more flavorful than any we have ever done in the crock pot. I liked the recipe in that we did not have to brown the meat. Almost no prep.
    Don't have pic, divided the left overs into small casserole dishes. Reheat at 300 F for 40 minutes for subsequent dinners.

    ** DH did not see the one quarter tsp of salt and did add too much on ours, but promises to cut down next time...


    *** other similar recipes I found - after 1.5 hours you can add potatoes, carrots, onions and let them cook the remaining 1.5 hours. May try that someday***

    On the roast subject, my favorite Tenderloin Pork roast is on our gas grill. Depends on the type of grill you have, it is simple, just olive oil, salt, pepper, grill and turns out every time.

    Ingredients


    1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
    3/4 cup olive oil
    6 cloves garlic, sliced
    2 teaspoons salt
    6 tablespoons dried oregano
    2 pounds pork tenderloin


    Directions
    1


    In a large resalable bag, combine lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and oregano or seasoning. Taste marinade. If too tart, add a little more oil. Not enough zing, add more lime. The garlic and salt flavors should also be up front, yet not overpowering. Add tenderloins, and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 5 hours.
    2

    Preheat grill for medium heat.
    3

    Brush grate with oil, and place meat on the grill. Cook over medium heat for 15 to 25 minutes, turning once.
