  • 1 (4 lb.) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed and tied

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rub roast all over with pepper; season with salt.

Warm oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Place roast in pan and cook, turning every 2 to 3 minutes, until browned on all sides, about 10 minutes total. Remove pan from heat, pour molasses over roast and turn roast to coat in molasses.
