How to make Rosemary Pork Roast:
The full printable recipe with ingredient amounts and instructions is included at the end of this post.
In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, rosemary, pepper, salt and balsamic vinegar.
Place your boneless pork loin in a roasting pan (fat-side-up). In the photos above, this looks like a slow cooker insert. But it’s actually just a black roasting pan! Place a meat thermometer in the roast. I love to use my remote meat thermometer! Roast the pork for 30 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees F.
Remove the roast from the oven, and spread the herb mixture over the pork. Return the pork roast to the oven and roast for about an additional 30 minutes. The safe temperature for pork is around 140 to 145 degrees. The temperature will rise a bit more once you take it out of the oven to rest.
Slice the rosemary pork roast thinly, and it’s ready to serve!
When you slice into the roast, juices will accumulate on your cutting board. Be sure to add those juices to your serving tray too. Just drizzle them on top of the roast. Garnish with sprigs of fresh rosemary!
Rosemary pork roast is delicious served with creamy oven baked mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. Enjoy!

made this recipe for my husband who claimed he hated pork. The difference was, I used a leg of pork, made slits on the top and I inserted slivers of garlic in them – then I rubbed the roast with rosemary. He loved it!! (Uh, guess I should tell you, I didn’t tell him it was a pork roast until after dinner, when he said how good it was. He just said to make it again for his parents)
