I had a small pork loin (smaller than called for) and used amount of herbs and spices called for. I placed all the spices in a zip top bag and then added the pork loin and massaged the spices in through the bag. I let it sit for probably 16 hours in the fridge before I roasted this. This recipe was super easy, tasted great, and my DH loved the leftovers on sandwiches the next day.

Flavour was definately good. I followed directions but it didn't turn out as moist as other reviews claimed...not sure why?

I couldn't find my sage. I did use tarragon instead. This is easy enough for an 11-year old to make. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of chipotle chile pepper. This roast was absolutely awesome! It was fun for my girl to run the spices through the mortar & pestle and rub them into the roast, the put it in the ziplock bag before baking. I'm planning on using the leftovers for pressed sandwiches.
