This herb crusted pork loin is your answer to what’s for dinner tonight!
I must admit, this has become a family favorite really quickly. In fact, I now make it just for the leftovers. I simply make it to the instructions below and once it’s done, I wrap it up and store it in the fridge for dinner the next night.
You don’t have to do that obviously, but we love slicing it and reheating with a little oil in the skillet until it’s slightly browned. It’s absolutely delicious! I usually serve this with some chard that I sautéed in a little bit of olive oil with some garlic powder. Sprinkle on a tiny bit of salt and you’re good to go! It makes a fabulous weeknight meal. In fact, this is one of those recipes that would be fantastic to prep on the weekend and eat a couple of days during the week. Although, I will say that 1 lb. goes pretty quickly. So if you are feeding multiple mouths, I recommend doubling the recipe. I promise, it’s worth it!
Mini chef even loves it chopped up for his lunch the next day, and I love that he’s getting some good, solid protein during his day of learning.
This is truly one of those classic family meals that you’ll come back to again and again. It really is a staple, and Mini Chef never squawks when I tell him I’m serving this for dinner. That’s saying a lot these days!
