While making this, you are going to be like me and say — that is WAY too much salt and rosemary for one recipe. Don't fret. That amount of salt is just perfect for this piece of loin.

Be sure to serve this with another great Paula Deen Dish — Grilled Potatoes and a loaf of my Cheesecake Factory Honey Wheat Bread.

I love making Paula Deen recipes. Some of my favorites have been these Old Fashioned Whoopie Pies, Chocolate Sheet Cake, Puff Pastry Burgers, and this House Seasoning Mix.

How to Make Herb Crusted Pork Loin

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees farenheit.

Place the pork loin on a rack in a roasting pan.

Combine 1 tablespoon salt, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 4 cloves garlic, minced, 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves, 2 teaspoons fresh basil leaves, and 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary. Mix well.

With your fingers, massage the mixture onto the pork loin, covering all of the meat and fat. 

Roast the pork for 30 minutes, then reduce the heat to 425 degrees F and roast for an additional hour.

Test for doneness using an instant-read thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees F, remove the roast from the oven.

Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes before carving. It will continue to cook while it rests.
