This is the kind of recipe I’m starting to live for.

Fast, nearly zero prep, and on the table and ready to eat in 40 minutes or less.

Things have been crazy busy in my life lately, and they don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon. I’ve been planning our little man’s 2ND birthday party (#holdme), working tirelessly on ad campaigns for our upcoming auctions, photographing and editing photos for my freelance gig, and checking off items on a never ending to-do list for a bit of a change that’s coming our way in the near future. I’ll talk about that a little more later.

And, no, I’m absolutely not pregnant.

Oven Roasted Garlic Herb Pork Loin: This quick and easy dinner recipe is a lifesaver when you've had a hectic day and need to get dinner on the table STAT! I sent out a survey to my subscribers a few weeks back and the consensus told me y’all wanted quick and easy dinner recipes which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. From here on out, I’m going to make a concerted effort to post more main meals.

Our family eats pork loin on a regular basis and, unless I’m making BBQ, I always roast it in the oven. Why? Because roasting pork at a high temp gives the meat this gorgeous outer crust that’s crispy and flavorful and makes me drool just thinking about it.

There is virtually zero prep time for this recipe, but you could always marinate the meat for a couple of hours if you wanted to. All you would need to do is mix the garlic and herb paste together, slather it on the meat then refrigerate until you were ready to make it. For best results, you should always bring your raw meats up to room temp before cooking, but I completely understand that sometimes ain’t nobody got time for that.

I most certainly don’t.

    Thank you for a delicious recipe! I was searching for a way to prepare the pork tenderloin I had just purchased and this seemed easy enough and I had all the necessary ingredients. My picky family loved it! It came out very moist and tender and I will be making this again. Thank you !

    This was so good! Very juicy!! Mine took much longer to cook though. Maybe it’s because I didn’t have time to let the meat get to room temperature. The only things I didn’t have were the rosemary and sage. I also didn’t add pepper, but I used seasoning salt. Thank you, this is a keeper!

      Yay! So happy you enjoyed it! Also, please excuse my very late response to your comment! I’m recovering from brain surgery so my blog has had to take a back seat for a while. Thanks for your support!

    This looks fantastic. The pork loin I have, however, is almost 5 lbs!! Any tips on cooking that big of one?

      Hi, Lisa! Soooooo sorry for the late response! I’m recovering from brain surgery so my blog has had to take a back seat for a while. At 450 degrees, pork should cook about 15mins per lb. I would probably cook the pork loin in the same method EXCEPT I would cover w/ tin foil for the first 45 mins, then remove and let it brown for the remaining half an hour. Let me know if you try it out!
