Paula Deen's Rosemary Roasted Pork.
  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Prep: 20 minutes
  • Cook: 1 hour 5 minutes


1tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
2teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
2cloves garlic, minced
3/4teaspoon salt
1 boneless center-cut pork loin roast, trimmed of all fat (2 lb)
1pound small Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and halved
1package package cut and peeled butternut squash (20 oz)
2medium leeks, white and light green parts only, cut into 1-inch pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.  Spray a large roasting pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine rosemary, sage, 2 teaspoons of oil, garlic, and salt in a small bowl.  Rub half of the herb mixture all over the pork.  Place the pork in the center of the roasting pan.
  3. Toss potatoes, squash, leeks, the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, and the remaining herb mixture in a large bowl until well coated.  Scatter the vegetables around the pork.
  4. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the pork registers 145°F for medium and the vegetables are tender, 45 – 50 minutes.  Transfer pork to a cutting board; cover loosely with foil, and let stand 15 minutes.
  5. Spread vegetables in the roasting pan in an even layer; return to the oven and roast, turning once or twice, until vegetables begin to brown and crisp slightly,  about 15 minutes longer.  Cut pork across the grain into 16 slices and serve with the vegetables.
