elaine's tender moist pork loin

This is a combination of a couple of recipes that I like. The result is a fork-tender, moist and delicious roast. The pan drippings make a beautifully seasoned gravy. There are very tasty pan drippings with little fat. All it needs is a thickener (a bit of flour) and some water. Serve with pan roasted potatoes and your choice of vegetables.
