How can I dress up a naked Pork Loin?

I have a defrosted pork loin and I would like to oven roast it tonight, but I don't have much in the way of exotic spices or marinades. Any suggestions?

  • insert some garlic cloves in roast, add some crushed black peppercorns, salt , a little oregano, basil,whatever herbs you have on hand. roll the roast in that and brown all sides in a skillet then roast in oven until done. We're having the same thing tonight and thats how I always make it.

  • Whenever I roast pork I always dump some apple juice over it then salt & pepper it.

  • Do you have any oven bags? those are terrific. You can do the loin, potatoes, carrots, celery, onoins, parsnips..whatever veggies you like all at one and all you need is a bit of salt, fresh pepper and garlic powder. Sunday meal worthy.

  • This is super easy - spread a whole grain mustard on top of it and roast away. It is surprising how good that is.

  • Italian dressing is always good, so is honey mustard or honey dijon, i have used apple sauce before and it was quite tasty- although pretty sweet.

  • Well, you've probably already cooked and eaten this, but I buy pork loin all the time. Last night I rubbed it down with a garlic/sage/maple syrup mixture and wrapped it in bacon. That was nice. I can never go wrong with the olive oil/salt/pepper/garlic/thryme/rosemary mix. That goes SOOOOO well with anything!

  • BBQ sauce or lemon/butter/herbs (what's on your spice rack?)
