Pork Loin with Rosemary and Garlic

Pork Loin

Happy weekend!  Our family cannot get enough pork!  We found our favorite pork recipe in a modern translation of a 16th century French cookbook and served it for our wedding reception.  But that is a recipe for another day.  This recipe however is an variation using beer and rosemary.  We made the photographed meal earlier this week and ate it two nights in a row.  Pork is one of the few leftovers my family will eat and not complain about.  The smell of the garlic and rosemary roasting on a cold, snowy, miserable day is a wonderful treat at the end of a long day.

Rosemary Garlic Pork Loin Roast

This pork loin recipe makes enough for us for two meals and is so easy!

One optional step that I take when making this for company is to brown the meat on both sides.  It is a simple  step that does not take up much time but really adds to the flavor.  However, it is something I do not typically do when it is just us.
