Herb Roasted Pork

Pin It
This isn't my picture but the one with the recipe online.  I forgot to take a picture because we were so hungry and ready to eat!  I have tried many many pork loin recipes and this is now our #1.  My search is over!  I used 2 smaller one pound tenderloins (instead of the roast in the recipe).  A good pork tenderloin is better than any kind of chicken in my opinion.  You have to use a meat thermometer and it will come out perfectly. 

(adapted from

2 teaspoons rubbed sage
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 (5 pound) boneless pork loin or 2 lbs of pork tenderloin
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.In a bowl, combine sage, salt, pepper, and garlic. Rub thoroughly all over pork. Place pork in an uncovered roasting pan on the middle oven rack.
3.Bake in the preheated oven approximately 3 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. (A roast could take hours but my 2 little tenderloins took about 45 min)
4.Meanwhile, place sugar, cornstarch, vinegar, water, and soy sauce in a small saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture begins to bubble and thicken slightly. Brush roast with glaze 3 or 4 times during the last 1/2 hour of cooking. Pour remaining glaze over roast, and serve.
