Tender and full of flavor, this lovely roast is an impressive main dish for a Christmas dinner or any special occasion. The aroma as the roast is baking, enhanced by rosemary and garlic, is mouthwatering. While it is in the oven I decorate my dining room table.—

Ingredients

  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-1/4 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 to 3-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place first six ingredients and 1/4 cup broth in a large resealable plastic bag; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 4-8 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Place roast in an ungreased roasting pan, fat side up, reserving marinade in bag. Add remaining broth to reserved marinade; pour over roast. Sprinkle roast with salt. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 145°, 1 to 1-1/4 hours.
  3. Remove roast from oven; tent with foil. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Meanwhile, skim fat from pan juices. Mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into juices. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with roast.
