Herb Roasted Pork Loin

(based on

1-1/2 lbs pork loin
2 cloves garlic
1 t dried basil
1 t dried thyme
1 t dried rosemary
1/2 t coarsely ground pepper
1/2 t salt
2 T olive oil

Preheat the oven to 425. Combine everything but the pork and the olive oil in a small food processor or clean spice grinder. Pulse until the garlic is minced. Or, if you don’t have either of those appliances, mince the garlic by hand and roughly chop the rosemary with a knife, then combine the garlic and seasonings. Add the olive oil and mix well.

Put the pork on a baking sheet covered with foil. (The foil makes it easier to clean up later.) Rub the oil and herb mixture over all sides of the pork roast. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes or until done. Let rest about 10 minutes before slicing.
