Note 1: The recipe is using a boneless pork loin, not a tenderloin. Use the cooking guide of 20-25 minutes per pound. Also the temperature guide to your preferred doneness:
Rare: 145°F - 150°F
Medium. 150°F 155°F
Medium Well 160°F - 165°F
Well Done. 160°F
Note 2: Pork can be salty, therefore, I have not added salt to the seasonings. It is best to taste everything after it has cooked to see if salt is needed.Note 3: Roast tender cuts of pork at higher temperatures such as 375°F so the meat cooks quickly and stays moist.Note 4: Do not cover the meat with aluminum foil while cooking so the exterior gets brown and crispy.Note 5: Use a digital meat thermometer to get an accurate temperature of cooked meat.Note 6: Let the meat rest for about 10 minutes to allow the juices to set. This ensures a juicy roast, every time. Note 7: Store leftovers in the fridge, covered, for up to 2 days
