Our favourite pork roast

Top Review by JennyLynn99

We need a 10 star option. Amazing! By far the best pork I have ever had, let alone made. I use a pork loin when I make this. There are only 2 of us so it's still enough food, and I can make it in about 45 minutes that way. (Roasting pan, uncovered, 2- 2.5 lbs, about 400*, about 45 minutes - We like our pork really done). The only other thing I change is that I use Syrah or Malbec from Frontera. It's pretty cheap but really tasty. We get a double bottle and serve it with dinner also. Anyway, this recipe is definitely restaurant quality and makes the perfect at-home date night. We usually have it with a salad and a rice dish, and oh yeah, plenty of wine!
