Roast Pork Loin with Sweet Potatoes and Cilantro Sauce
Unassuming and simple to prepare, a boneless pork roast is hearty fare for a casual family dinner. We wanted to turn it into a memorable one-dish meal.
Why This Recipe Works
For a simple cilantro sauce to use in our Roast Pork Loin recipe, we pulsed cilantro, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, and sugar in a food processor until the cilantro was minced but still retained some texture. Brining the pork kept the meat juicy, and rubbing the loin with a spice rub gave the pork’s exterior color and flavor. Our best results came when we cooked our Oven-Roasted Pork Loin in a moderate oven until it was almost at the desired temperature. It finished cooking as it rested. For a side dish, we roasted sweet potatoes in a hotter oven on the same baking sheet while the pork rested.
