Ingredients

  • 1 (4-lb.) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed
  • Kitchen string
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fruit Compote

How to Make It

  1. Tie pork with kitchen string, securing at 2-inch intervals. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Stir together garlic and next 3 ingredients. Rub over pork.

  2. Light 1 side of a grill, heating to 350° to 400° (medium-high); leave other side unlit. Place pork over lit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 8 to 10 minutes on each side or until browned. Move pork over unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 145° to 150°. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with Fruit Compote.
