Preparing the Pork Loin

Ingredients

2-1/2 to 3 pound pork loin
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons rubbed sage
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, minced (or 1 teaspoon dried)
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3/4 teaspoon sea salt or  to taste

Method

Remove meat from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before roasting.  Move the oven rack to the lowest position in the oven.   Preheat the oven to 500F

Wipe down the meat with paper toweling.  Using a sharp knife, remove any large pieces of fat and all silver skin.  Mix the garlic, sage, rosemary, sea salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.  Rub over the entire surface of the pork.  Place the pork on a rack in a small roasting pan and put on the lower rack of the hot oven.  Roast the pork for 15 - 20 minutes, until the pork begins to spatter. 

Reduce the oven temperature to 350F and continue roasting the pork until an instant-read thermometer registers 150F (about 12-15 minutes per pound).  The meat should be pale pink when cut in the thickest part.  Remove the meat from the oven, cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest for 10 minutes before carving. 

Prepare the Apricot-Fig Balsamic Finishing Sauce while the pork is resting.

Slice the pork in 1/4 inch thick slices and arrange on a heated platter.  Spoon the Apricot Fig Balsamic Finishing Sauce (recipe follows) over the meat and serve. 

Preparing the Apricot-Fig Balsamic Finishing Sauce

2 tablespoons pan juices or low sodium boxed chicken stock

Method

Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until heated through.  Serve with pork roast.  If the mixture is too thick, thin with additional chicken stock.
