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

How to Make Thyme and Lemon Pork Loin

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.
