Saturday, November 27, 2010

Lemon Herb Pork Loin Roast  done in a slow cooker, oven or grilled this is a wonderful flavored pork tenderloin!

                                    Lemon and Herb Pork Tenderloin
1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin
2 cloves of fresh minced garlic
1 tablespoon of honey
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon each  oregano, basil, parsley
pinch of rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon of lemon zest
Place all ingredients in a large plastic bag and marinate overnight or up to 4 hours. 

NOTE:  If using a slow cooker, sear meat in a fry pan on both sides in some olive oil and butter till brown and flip over. Place browned pork in a slow cooker with 6 to 8 hours on low.
Oven Method:
Bake in oven covered the first 20 minutes,  in roasting pan with juices. Uncover and cook another 35 minutes  until browned, and pork is cooked all the way through.
Cook pork for 20 to 30 minutes.
Alternative, you can also grill this outside when weather permits, slice the tenderloin into pork loin steaks and cook on the grill till browned and thoroughly cooked on both sides.


  1. I'm not sure I can eat any more right now, but if I could....

  2. I actually bookmarked this for the pork tenderloin panini I'm making tonight! This would go perfect with the other ingredients (your marinade, I mean) Thanks!

  3. Mi sembra di sentire un profumino... Ottima ricetta.
    Buona domenica Daniela.

  4. That's a very pretty and perfect looking pork tenderloin, Claudia. And I imagine the marinade being so fragrant and wonderful. Ooh, I bet the lemon breaks the meat down a bit too (a natural tenderizer):)!

  5. Lovely flavours for a pork tenderloin! Looks amazing Claudia, as is everything you do :)
