Roast Pork Loin
3 1/2 lb. Pork Loin - Trimmed of fat and patted dry & trussed - Room temperature
2 tbsp Kosher Salt
1 tbsp Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Taco Seasoning
1 tsp Dried Mustard
1 tsp Roasted Pepper Powder (Optional - I make my own)
1 tsp BBQ Seasoning
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
3 tbsp Butter
1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 Cup Vegetable Stock (or Chicken or whatever you have)
1/4 Large Onion - Chopped
In a bowl, mix together the spices to combine. Generously rub the spices over the pork loin and press into the meat.
In a baking dish add vegetable stock and onion. Set aside.
In a pan over med / high heat, add the EVOO, butter and vegetable oil. Add the seasoned pork loin and brown on all sides (and ends) about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to baking dish and cover with foil.
In a preheated to 375 degree oven, add the pork loin and cook for about 35 minutes. Increase the oven to 400 degrees, remove the foil and cook the pork loin for about another 10 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
Let pork loin rest for 10-15 minutes.
Take the juices and onion from the baking dish and blend for gravy.
