Balsamic Pork Roast

I am not a fan of pork.
Pork chops are probably my least favorite meal.

But this pork..... this pork is heavenly.
So moist .
So tasty (even when it's a bit burnt..... which in all honesty makes it even better in my opinion.)

Chris loves it. I love it. The kids love it (well except for our baby girl who seems to be turning into a vegetarian as of late. The child refuses to eat meat. What's up with that?! It's just a stage....right?!)

Anyways, back to the pork.
This roast is probably one of my favorite meals. And hooray for me they were on sale- buy one get one free, so, naturally I bought a two pack and ended up with four. I now have three lovely pork roasts waiting in my freezer (and they were only $5 each!)

Balsamic Pork Roast
(adapted from Your Homebased Mom)

1 Pork Roast
4 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
4 tbsp olive oil
8 cloves of garlic (chopped)
coarse salt
1/2-1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp sea salt mix ( this is just a mix of various spices I bought from the health food store, I use it in everything.... you can also substitute with a steak spice if you want)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp rosemary

Preheat oven to 500 degrees

Put tenderloin on a cookie sheet lined with foil.
Cut small slits into meat and disperse chunks of chopped garlic into meat.
Coat roast with balsamic vinegar and rub into meat. Drizzle with olive oil to coat.
Combine all your spices to make a rub. Rub into meat.

Roast in oven for about 45 minutes until it reaches an internal temperature of 170 degrees.

Let meat rest for 10 minutes before carving.
And try not to steal a taste before you serve :)

p.s. Sorry for the blurry picture. I am still trying to figure out my new camera. I was a little late getting dinner on the table...cough 6:45 cough... (oh, and the kids normally go to bed at 7pm) and my family didn't want to wait to eat in order for me to play around with the camera settings. The nerve.
