Loin of pork w. garlic and cayenne

Last time at the butcher we bough a number of pork loins, really nice marbled as always! It can be a bit messy to fry them in a cast iron pan like we usually do, but to cook them in the oven like this is really convenient!

The pork loin was served with the Hasselback squash from the day before and the red cabbage salad as well as some sauerkraut. Don’t forget the click of butter on top as well!

It’s very simple. Just put the meat in a oven ramekin and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Add some whole garlic cloves on top as well!

Place in the oven at 150°C and cook until the meat isn’t red anymore. In the oven, it’s a small risk for the meat to become dry some the timing is not crucial.

How delicious doesn’t these loin of pork look? So juicy and so much flavor! Not only from the seasoning but also from the meat itself since it is from free-range happy pigs.

Happy cooking,
