Roasted Pork Loin with Truffle Sauce
Ask your butcher to french the pork loin roast, which involves cutting the meat and fat away from the end of the bones. Serve the roasted pork loin with our Spinach Risotto alongside (see related recipe at left).
- 1 bone-in pork loin roast with 6 bones, about 4 1/2 lb., frenched
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
- 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
- 1 cup truffle finishing sauce
Season the pork roast with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Preheat an oven to 400ºF.
Heat a 5 1/2-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Pour in the oil and heat until shimmering. Add the pork and brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Add the rosemary to the pan and transfer to the oven. Roast the pork for 45 minutes, then turn it over and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat, away from the bone, registers 145°F for medium, 30 to 45 minutes more. Transfer the pork to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour off the excess fat from the pan. Pour the finishing sauce into the pan, set over low heat and stir, scraping up the browned bits from the pan bottom, until the sauce is hot, 1 to 2 minutes.
Carve the pork roast between the bones into 6 chops and transfer to a warmed platter. Spoon the sauce over the chops and serve immediately. Serves 6.
