4 Ingredient, 4 Step Balsamic Pork in the Oven

I cooked again!

This time I pulled a pork loin roast out of the freezer. I looked for a recipe to use for it, and found a nice, simple one on AllRecipes.  One that used balsamic.  As you can see, I like simple recipes.

As I cooked this, I realized one of the reasons I’m nervous about cooking.  I’m afraid of under-cooking meat…. especially pork & chicken.  Even though I follow the recipes, AND use a meat thermometer, I have a horrible fear of making my family sick.  A ‘phobia’ of preparing meat.  Huh.  Who knew.  One more thing to overcome, I guess.

I have to say that this dish was dangerously yummy!  I was soooooo good.  I made it with an asiago rice (package), and it went well together. The tang & sweetness of the meat, with the bitterness of the cheese.  Yup.  Delish!


So, I’m slowly getting this cooking thing going.  I can do this!  I have to apologize, I was so excited, and it was so yummy, I forgot to take pictures.  Woops!

This recipe came from All Recipes.  I did not come up with this.  Not only do they have an awesome website, but they have a magazine subscription, and it’s only $5 for the year!  I love cooking magazines!  You can have it delivered in print, or you can even get it on automatically delivered every month on Kindle.  Cool.

This recipe only has 4 ingredients.  Four!

2 tablespoons steak seasoning rub
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 pounds boneless pork loin roast

Like I said, I like simple recipes.  This one is pretty darn simple. 4 steps.

Four ingredients, four steps!

  1. Dissolve steak seasoning in balsamic vinegar, then stir in olive oil. Place pork into a resealable plastic bag and pour marinade overtop. Squeeze out air and seal bag; marinate 2 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Place pork into a glass baking dish along with marinade. Bake in preheated oven, basting occasionally until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (65 degrees C), about 1 hour.
  4. Let the roast rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
