I get really nice pork loin roast at Sam's Club. It's big enough to cut it into three pieces and I get three nice meals out of it. No preservatives/flavorings etc, just plain meat. I cook mine with some dry onion soup mix, wrap it in foil and let it cook until done. Comes out nice, tender and I have gravy. Overcooking can make a loin dry since there's not much fat.

Pacanis-That pic of the pork wrapped in bacon should be illegal!!

I made the pork roast today. The recipe called for the pork loin (I'm sure they intended a "clean", unaltered loin). I rinsed and dried mine to get as much of the "seasoning" (I use that word very lightly here) and patted it dry. The recipe called for a seasoning rub of: garlic powder, oregano, cumin, coriander, thyme and salt. I had everything except coriander so I substituted with a Lemon/Herb blend I had. Then brown all sides in garlic infused olive oil. Bake for 20 min. (I checked w/ thermometer and it wasn't done so I added 10 min.) It came out very, very juicy and flavorful. If anything it was a little too salty....no doubt from the seasoning/preservative junk they put in it. Also maybe a little too "thyme-ey". Overall, though, not too bad. I had made a pot of green beans cooked w/ salt pork and new potatoes.Served w/ french bread.

Here is how it all looked:

That looks delicious. I agree, the excess salt is undoubtedly from the stuff they put on at the store or factory.

I cooked to 160 degrees and then let it sit for 10-15 before carving.

Me too, Annie. I like my pork white, not pink. I always shoot for 160ish. And you can see from your pic that if you cook it right, it's still juicy.
If you are not opposed to opening a can to help with dinner, this recipe is simply awesome. I've made this a few times and the gravy tastes like gravy, not like condensed soup, so don't let the soup throw you.

Thanks for the link Pacanis. I like to use cream soups as a base for gravy. This would be wonderful. Copies, pasted and printed.

I'm kind of in the mood for a pork roast myself, now.

Pacanis-That recipe looks like something my fiance would LOVE. Add some mashed potatoes and he would be orbiting the moon! I, however, have an aversion to Cream of Mushroom....and Onion Soup for that matter. I would probably adapt it and used Cream of Chicken (they don't make a Cream of Pork, do they?) or Celery...not sure on the Onion Soup....maybe boullion.

I have quit doing the Pork Loin.
The Boston Butt or Shoulder roast much more favorable.
Also use this for pulled pork sandwiches.
No fancy sauces. With all the BBQ sauces on the shelf I don't have to worry with making a sauce.
I prefer the Bull's Eye original, with KFC Cold Slaw.
Pretty close to the BBQ pork sandwich I grew up with in Virginia.

Yes, I use a store-bought sauce myself. I don't like them too sweet though. I try to buy something labeled "hickory" or similar. I also put Liquid Smoke in it while it is cooking in the crock pot, before adding the sauce after shredding. When I was a kid we always put the slaw ON the sandwich with the BBQ....yum! I still do it like that a lot.

I did a pork loin tonight for dinner. I brined it first, then sprinkled it with lemon pepper and some montreal steak spice. I roasted it at 350 for an hour. It was AWESOME.

You would probably like the cream of celery better with a pork loin, just from personal experience.
