This roast pork loin recipe with potatoes is a snap to prepare and cook. The pork roast is rubbed with basic seasonings and they it's roasted to perfection with potatoes. I 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 boneless pork loin roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 4 to 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon freeze-dried or fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Steps to Make It

Heat the oven to  325 F (165 C/Gas 3).

Rub pork loin with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme, then sprinkle with salt and pepper; place pork loin in a shallow roasting pan.

Roast in the preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel and quarter potatoes; cook in boiling water for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Drain, let cool, and place potatoes in a large bowl; toss with olive oil, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, chives, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and salt and pepper.

Place potatoes around pork loin; roast an additional 45 to 60 minutes, or until pork registers at least 145 F on a thermometer.

Cover roast pork loin with foil and let stand for about 15 minutes before slicing.

Serves 8 to 10.
