  • 10
    Mix the salt & pepper together in a small bowl.
  • 11
    Rub the olive oil over the pork loin, and then sprinkle with the salt & pepper.

    Remove from the oven, reduce the heat to 300f (150c), and brush on some of the glaze.
  • 16
    Return to the oven, and roast until the internal temp reaches 135f (60c), about 35 to 40 minutes.
