This roast pork loin recipe with potatoes is a snap to prepare and cook. The pork roast is rubbed with basic seasonings and then it's roasted to perfection with potatoes. We use fingerlings or small whole new potatoes if they're available. Red-skinned potatoes or Yukon gold are good choices as well.

Serve the roast with steamed vegetables and a salad for an extra-special family meal. This roast makes a great Sunday dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme (divided)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon freeze-dried or fresh chives
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
