How to Make It

Roasting Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. Combine the brown sugar, flour, chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, and the garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and oregano; blend well. Rub the pork loin all over with the flour and seasoning mixture. Place the pork, fat-side up, in a baking pan.
  3. Roast the pork for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the meat registers at least 145° on an instant read thermometer or oven probe inserted in the thickest part of the roast.
  1. Remove the roast from the oven, cover loosely with foil, and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
  2. Spoon pan juices over the pork roast or serve the roast with the Mushroom Madeira Sauce (directions below), if desired.
  3. Serves 4 to 6, with leftovers.

Mushroom Madeira Sauce Instructions

  1. While the roast is cooking, saute the mushrooms in the butter until tender; add the green onions and saute for 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside until the roast is done.
  2. When the roast is done and resting, add the pan juices to the mushrooms and green onions, along with the water, Madeira, and red wine vinegar. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Taste and add salt and freshly ground black pepper, as needed.
  3. Makes about 2 cups of sauce.
