Paula Deen's Porkloin is the BEST!!!

Pin It Now! *Please take a moment to enter my giveaway!!
Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Ingredients• 1 (4-pound) boneless pork loin, with fat left on
• 1 tablespoon salt
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 teaspoon dried thyme or 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves
• 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves
• 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary

DirectionsPreheat oven to 475 degrees F.
Place the pork loin on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. With your fingers, massage the mixture onto the pork loin, covering all of the meat and fat.
Roast the pork for 30 minutes, then reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast for an additional hour. Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests.

*Our family loves this meal--even my kids gobble it up!!! It would make a great Christmas dinner, too, served with homemade cranberry sauce and fresh green beans--YUM!!

*Updated to include Crock Pot Method (1-15-13)

I have found that this same recipe works wonders in the crock pot! Instead of a pork tenderloin, I use a pork roast. Even if it isn't exactly 4 lbs. I use the same amounts of spices, herbs, and oil. Sometimes I put the meat in the crock pot all by itself, but this last time, I added potatoes and carrots.

This meal is just so yummy. :)

Now linking up with Try a New Recipe Tuesday.
