This is so good. The amounts are approximate. I really didn't measure anything.

For a better flavor, marinade several hours in the fridge.

Ingredients

4 lb
pork loin, boneless
sprig(s)
thyme, fresh
1
lemon
2 Tbsp
olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut deep slits in the fat side of the pork loin.
2
Insert 2-3 sprigs of fresh thyme and 1/4 of a slice of lemon.
3
Rub the fat side with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with sprigs of thyme and fresh lemon slices.
4
Roast at 350 for about 25 minutes per pound or until a meat thermometer reaches 145. That is 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
5
For more depth of flavor, let marinade for several hours in the fridge before cooking.
6
I made a pan sauce with the drippings. I shook up 1 Tablespoon of corn starch and about 1 cup of water, added the juice of 1/2 lemon and stripped the thyme leaves from about 5 sprigs, Salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and let thicken.
