Balsamic Rosemary Pork Loin with Roasted Potatoes:
1 1/2 cups fresh rosemary leaves
12 cloves garlic
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 lbs pork...
2 1/2 lbs red potatoes, cut into 1/2" wedges...
Combine all ingredients in a food processor until it's a coarse wet paste. Spread 3/4 of the paste on the roast, and place it in a roasting pan, fat side up, with 3" room around it for the potatoes. Cook 15 minutes at 450.
Meanwhile, mix potatoes and remaining paste. Reduce oven to 350, place potatoes around roast, cook for 50-60 minutes, tossing potatoes halfway. When done, let rest 10 minutes, then serve.
I LOVE this recipe, it tastes so good. You could probably substitute the fresh rosemary with dried/crushed, but probably use less. I never have balsamic vinegar, so I use apple cider vinegar, with a little sugar. I substitute garlic cloves with garlic powder.
