2 1/2 pounds pork loin
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons butter
1 whole garlic bulb, top cut off
1 bunch whole sage
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup white wine
SAGE AND GARLIC ROASTED PORK LOIN
Love this dish: not much cooking at all, since most of the
magic happens inside the oven.
Heat oven to 325°F.
Rub the pork loin with olive oil;
season with salt and pepper.
Coat a pan with oil and heat; brown the pork on all sides.
Place in an ovenproof dish with the garlic.
Sprinkle sage on top and secure meat with kitchen string.
Add the stock and wine.
Cover with foil and cook for 1 1/2 hours.
Remove the foil and cook for another 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let the meat
rest 10 minutes before slicing.
Serve with mashed potatoes, garlic and
the jus from the pan.
