DIRECTIONS

  • Pork Loin Directions-------------.
  • Set oven to 475 degrees.
  • Pierce top of pork loin with sharp knife about every one or two inches, depending on your fondness for garlic (if there is a fatty layer, that would be the top side), Insert slivered garlic into the slits made by the knife.
  • Combine mustard, thyme, savory, marjoram, salt and pepper to make a smooth paste.
  • Spread all over pork loin, roll the loin in chopped parsley.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let rest in refrigerator for at least one hour.
  • Place on rack in shallow roasting pan.
  • Roast in 475 degree oven for exactly 30 minutes.
  • Pull loin out, and rest on countertop (uncovered) for exactly 30 minutes.
  • (This step is very important! The loin will continue to cook internally as it rests at room temperature, and this creates a juicy loin).
  • As the loin is resting, turn oven temperature down to 325 degrees.
  • After the loin has rested, put it back in the oven (325 degrees), and bake for approx.
  • 30- 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
  • Do not overcook!
  • Let the loin rest uncovered for 15-20 minutes before slicing, the internal temperature will continue to climb even after taking the loin from the oven.
  • (150-155 degrees) While the loin is resting, begin the currant sauce.
  • Currant Sauce Directions-------------.
  • Over medium heat, melt jam.
  • Whisk in mustard, vinegar, and salt and pepper until smooth.
  • Slice the loin very thinly, and pour a stream of currant sauce over the slices for presentation.
  • Enjoy!
