Ingredients

garlic clove(s)

3 medium clove(s), minced

rosemary

1 Tbsp, fresh, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried

table salt

¾ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp

uncooked lean and fat pork loin

1¼ pound(s), center-cut, trimmed

apricot jam

2 Tbsp

Dijon Mustard

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Lightly spray a roasting pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Stir together the garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture over the pork. Place the pork in the prepared pan and roast 30 minutes.
  3. Stir together the jam and mustard in a small bowl and brush all over the pork. Continue to roast the pork until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 160ºF for medium, about 10 minutes longer. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Cut the roast into 12 slices. Yields 3 slices pork per serving.
Notes
Toss 1 pound of halved fingerling potatoes with a little rosemary, salt, and pepper, and spray with nonstick spray. Scatter in the roasting pan around the pork and roast until tender.
