Butter Roasted Pork Loin


  • 1 pork loin I know these babies come in all sizes - I used a 4 pounder for this recipe
  • 1 stick softened unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp. minced cilantro
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • ½ tbsp. pepper
  • ½ tbsp. dry thyme

Mushroom Sauce

  • 1 pint fresh mushrooms, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1-2 cups beef stock


  • In a bowl mix together butter and seasoning until completely blended.
  • Generously season your pork loin with salt and pepper and chili powder.
  • Sear your loin in a hot pan until browned ( you will probably have to cut in half to do this).
  • Spray a roasting pan with nonstick spray and place your loin in pan.
  • Completely cover loin with the butter mixture spreading it all over the loin to evenly coat on all sides.
  • Place in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Remove and let rest for 10 minutes before cutting.

Mushroom Sauce

  • In a large skillet over medium heat melt butter.
  • Add mushrooms and onions and sauté until slightly browned.
  • Add garlic and continue sautéing for another minute.
  • Add flour and stir to completely combine.
  • Add beef broth and stir to combine and bring back to a boil.
  • If your sauce is too thick just add more beef broth. Salt and pepper to taste.
