Roasted Pork Loin with Lentils



 
Roasted Pork Loin with Lentils
 
Tonight I have school so I decided to make a Roasted Pork Loin because I knew I could make it early and It would still be wonderful tonight when my hubby gets home. Also, my kiddies like it..haha.. It was very easy to make and it could also be cooked in a crock pot for those working moms! Enjoy!!
 
Ingredients:
 
1 Pork Loin from the Butcher- Mine was about 2 lbs
5 Yukon Gold Potatoes sliced into wedges
1 Large Orange Sweet pepper sliced into long wedges
1 Tub of Button White Mushrooms sliced thick
1/2 Cup Semi cooked Lentils (this could be done the day before)
1/2 cup of White Wine- If you wouldn't drink, don't cook with it!
3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Handful Chopped fresh Parsley
1 Tablespoon Lowry's Garlic Salt
2 peeled garlic cubes
1/2 cup of Chicken Broth
 
Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 375. Take the Pork Loin from the Butcher or food store and place it into a throw away pan. Add the potatoes, mushrooms, sliced pepper, garlic, and lentils into the pan. Then add wine, oil, Chicken Broth,salt and pepper, Lowry's garlic salt and fresh parsley on top of everything in pan. Cover with Foil and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. Then remove foil and let bake for an additional 30 minutes or until Pork is cooked all the way through.  Once finished cooking, take out of oven and leave covered until ready to serve.
 
PS- I cooked the rest of the lentils into a soup (previously posted) and paired it with this for dinner!!
