Roasted Pork Loin with Rosemary

(makes 6 servings)

1 1/2pounds (675 g) boneless pork loin roast
3garlic cloves, peeled and mashed
1/2tablespoon (7.5 ml) chopped fresh rosemary
1tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil
1/4teaspoon (1.5 ml) salt (optional)
 vegetable cooking spray
1/3cup (80 ml) dry white wine
 rosemary sprigs for garnish (optional)
  1. With a sharp knife, make slits in the pork every inch (2.5 cm) or so at regular intervals.
  2. Combine the garlic, rosemary, olive oil, pepper, and salt (if using) in a small bowl. Rub the mixture over the roast and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Before you are ready to roast the pork, preheat oven to 400°F (220°C, Gas Mark 6).
  4. Spray an oven proof roasting pan with cooking spray and place the roast in it. Roast until an instant-reading meat thermometer registers 160°F (71°C), about 1 1/4 hours, basting once. Transfer the pork to a warmed platter. Keep warm.
  5. Pour off any fat in the roasting pan. Deglaze the pan with wine and reduce over high heat, scraping up all the cooked bits, until the wine is reduced by 1/3.
  6. To serve, slice in thin slices and spoon the wine sauce over the slices. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
