Roasted Pork Loin Recipe.  Noted in Nashville.Paprika from Spain, turmeric used in many Indian dishes, garlic, thyme, and Irish whiskey happily put together in an American kitchen, work surprisingly well together in this pork loin recipe.

This is recipe two of two.  See what I did with the other half of the large pork loin here – Shredded Chipotle Pork.

Allow pork loin to absorb dry rub for 1 – 3 days before cooking for best flavor.

Place meat in a bowl and cover.  Refrigerate for 1 – 3 days.

To Cook:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place pork loin in cooking dish and cook uncovered for 1 – 1 ½ hours.  When ready, pork will no longer be pink and juices will run clear.

For those of you with a meat thermometer, here is a link to the perfect temperature for roast pork:

Allow pork to rest before cutting.  For a roast this large, I gave 10 – 15 minutes.

To Make Gravy:

While pork loin rests, deglaze the pot containing the pork drippings with whiskey on medium high heat.  Add flour and whisk thoroughly.  Slowly whisk in water to reach desired consistency.  Add salt and pepper to taste if needed.

  1. I made your Shredded Chipotle Pork in my crockpot last night and served it fajita style. So good! Everyone loved it. I used a whole can of the diced tomatoes with chili peppers though, and I omitted the water, because I was worried it would be too ‘juicy’ for tortillas. Turned out great. Thanks so much for the idea! So easy to make in the crockpot. Today’s recipe looks wonderful, too.

    • I was inspired by what I happened to have around, and I thought, “Why the heck not?!?” I wasn’t sure it was going to be good, so I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it was. Thanks for stopping by!
