The Technique

Lemon-Thyme Pork Loin Roast 

Pork loin roasts are effortless to prepare & an ideal main dish to serve guests when entertaining. Lemon-Thyme Pork Loin Roast comes together quickly & butcher twine isn’t necessary to make one of quality. The good news is that this particular cut is relatively the same circumference from end to end which will ensure even cooking & the proper temperature throughout once complete. This procedure allows for options as the mustard based seasoning blend can be prepared ahead & chilled, then added to the roast just before baking or it can be brushed over the surface of the pork, placed on the prepared pan & chilled up to 1 day ahead of time. Follow my pointers for preparing this simple yet hard working entree.

The Seasoning Blend

Dijon mustard is an excellent base to use for a seasoning blend s it not only offers good flavor but once cooked, a beautiful color on the outside of the roast. Lemon zest takes the lead to provide bright notes to this simple mixture & does not compromise the texture if it will be added to the pork & chilled overnight.
