Pork Roast Provencale

"A busy day recipe that turns out tender and moist. I have made this recipe with boneless pork loin, boneless pork loin roast, and also with pork sirloin roast that has a bone in it-all are good. The timing here does not include MARINATING it overnight. If you prefer more of a lemony taste in your pork gravy, go ahead and increase the lemon juice. I also prefer the lower amount of thyme but you might want to up it. I marinate this in a small oven cooking bag that I plan on roasting it in. I like to serve it with roasted potatoes and baby carrots -I put that in for about 1 hour and 45 minutes."

  1. I used half of a pork tenderloin, and mine turned out wonderfully moist. I was going crazy after about 20 minutes of roasting....the smell is devine! I marinated for 12 hours, and that seemed fine. My sauce seemed a little thick, but maybe it is because I used a tenderloin (producing less juice) and I halved all the other ingredients. I also love a recipe that lets me throw something into the oven and forget about it! I wish I had your lifestyle....sounds wonderful. I really enjoyed this pork roast...made for photo tag! Thanks for sharing your recipe.
  2. Delicious: wonderfully tender and flavoursome. Loved the lemon and thyme. I marinated overnight and made exactly to the recipe, and wouldn't want to change a thing. We enjoyed this with Trinkets' Recipe #346067. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe, WiGal. Made for PRMR.
