Roasted Pork Loin

Roasted Pork Loin

2 pounds boneless pork loin
rub (see recipe below)
sliced Provolone
creamy coleslaw (optional)

Pork Rub :
1/2 t cayenne
1/2 t cumin
1-1/3 T granulated onion powder
1-1/3 T granulated garlic powder
1 T Nature's Seasoning
3/4 t white pepper
1 t salt

Mix rub ingredients together. Shake (never touch with porky fingers) on pork loin and... gently massage in. Sprinkling a little more as needed. It's quite flavorable you don't need a ton. This amount of rub will do 3-4 loins.Couple different options for the next step. You can sear it on a grill, in an oiled pan, or not at all. I discovered that the last option was still tasty after I forgot to do it once. Place on a rack in a pan and place in 350 degree oven. Cook approximately 1 hour and 5 minutes until meat thermometer poked in the thickest region reaches 155 degrees. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. With sharp knife slice pork very thin.
Serve on a bun with provolone between the meat so it melts and coleslaw on the side or on the sandwich as a condiment. I love to eat this meat cold, straight from the fridge!
