Best spices and herbs to compliment pork ??

I have 2 ingredients:

1-Pork Loin (boneless)
2-Cream of Mushroom soup

I am trying to find the best herbs and/or spices combination to compliment these 2 ingredients to give maximum flavor to the dish.

Any suggestions?

Sage, thyme, or a little rosemary.

marjoram
thyme
parsley
white pepper
basil

not asked for but white wine added to the soup would work along with a little butter

I have added these same things for a chicken dish and oddly enough onion and garlic do not go with this - only the "sweeter" herbs/spices

I agree with all the suggestions above (use 2 or 3 of them!) and would like to add garlic and onion too.

I think Tattrat's first suggestion of sage is the classic, and would be my choice.

Nutmeg works well too (together with p&s).

sage or thyme would be my recs. however, nutmeg would be delish and an intersting option..especially if you toiped it all with grated swiss cheese and let it brown a bit.

I enjoy the sage/thyme combination also. Another thing I do, when using the cream of mushroom soup, is use a pkt of dry onion soup mix to season the meat.
If you want to skip the mushroom soup, you could season your roast with cloves, orange juice and honey. Here's a good looking recipe for that:
