Roasted Pork Sirloin w/ Rosemary

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. Paleo life is great! Recently, as you all know from my last post, I have been sort of busy. I'm prioritizing and keeping life in check, I got my camera back, so I have a picture of the finished product this time!

Today we are going to make a Roasted Pork Sirloin Roast w/ Rosemary, crispy on the outside, moist on the inside! :)

Pork Sirloin Roast                                                  1.5lbs
Sea Salt (To your preference)                           1/2 tsp - 1 tsp
Fresh ground black pepper                                1/4 tsp
Garlic Powder                                                          1/2 tsp
Onion Powder                                                          1/2 tsp
Ground Coriander                                                   1/2 tsp
Ground Mustard                                                      1/4 tsp
Sweet Paprika                                                          1/4 tsp
Cayenne Pepper                                                       Dash
Rosemary Leaves                                                     1 tsp
Garlic Olive Oil                                                         1.5 tsp

1.) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2.) Rub the Pork Loin down with all of the above ingredients and allow it to sit for a while as the oven preheats (Around 15 minutes)
3.) Position an adjustable roasting rack in a roasting pan and sit the porkloin on the roasting rack.
4.) Put the pork roast into the oven and roast it at 400 degrees for 30 min. and turn the heat down to 350 degrees and roast for another 30 min. (If the roast is starting to crisp and brown, tent it to prevent a burnt roast)
5.) Check for done-ness, if the meat is cooked to your preference, remove the tent, and broil for a few minutes (4-5 min) to crisp the outside before taking it out of the oven.
6.) Remove it from the oven and allow it to sit for 5-8minutes before serving. Enjoy!!!!

P.S. I do not recommend consuming undercooked meat.
