“This delicious recipe is actually a combination of three different recipes, with a unique cooking method to keep the loin juicy. When my husband bought a 12 pound pork loin (because it was "on sale"), I panicked! I didn't have much experience cooking pork loin, and I knew that they can come out tough and tasteless if cooked improperly. I cut the loin into three 4-pound portions and threw them in the freezer, while I scoured the internet and cook books for a recipe and cooking directions. Now, this recipe is a family favorite! This would be wonderful for a holiday meal, or anytime you want to create something that will "wow" your family!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pork Loin Directions-------------.
  2. Set oven to 475 degrees.
  3. Pierce top of pork loin with sharp knife about every one or two inches, depending on your fondness for garlic (if there is a fatty layer, that would be the top side), Insert slivered garlic into the slits made by the knife.
  4. Combine mustard, thyme, savory, marjoram, salt and pepper to make a smooth paste.
  5. Spread all over pork loin, roll the loin in chopped parsley.

  8. Roast in 475 degree oven for exactly 30 minutes.

  13. 30- 45 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
  14. Do not overcook!
  15. Let the loin rest uncovered for 15-20 minutes before slicing, the internal temperature will continue to climb even after taking the loin from the oven.
  16. (150-155 degrees) While the loin is resting, begin the currant sauce.
