Seasoning and chilling the meat uncovered will help form a crust, encouraging a beautiful deep, golden brown color while cooking.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 10 ingredients in a small bowl. Rub over pork. Chill, uncovered, 8 to 12 hours.

Step 2

Let pork stand at room temperature 30 minutes. (Bringing it to room temperature will help it cook faster and more evenly.)

Step 3

Preheat oven to 400°. Cook pork in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Lightly grease a wire rack with cooking spray. Place pork on rack in a roasting pan.

Step 4

Bake at 400° for 35 to 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 135°. Remove from oven, and let stand 15 minutes before serving.

This recipe was easy to make and very tasty. However, next time I will cut the salt in half. A bite of meat without the crust was delicious but the crust was too salty.
