    Very tasty. Will probably add paprika next time for color. Wasnt sure which side of the loin i should place down on the pan, i think i did the wrong side (fatty side down). Luckily i got the temp right and it didn't come out dry. i followed temp instructions and my total Roast time came out to 30 minutes(convection off).

    Made this as written...delicious! Slice thin and don't overcook. Use a thermometer! Uhhh, to the other comments that say the meat didn't cook to temp in the time stated, please read the recipe! It says, "When internal temperature of roast is 145 degrees F., remove from oven...". That means the time is determined by the temperature of the roast, right? It was pretty clear to me.....

    i made this recipe with about a 3.5lb half loin. for something that size the cooking time was way off. for something that size. in order to form a sort of crispy crust. i recommend about a half hour at 450°. then turn it down to 350° for about 20 minutes. cover pan with foil. and bake for 10 to 15 minutes longer. take out and let cool for approximately 10 minutes covered. keep in mind all oven temp. consistancy vary. so it may take a longer or shorter amount of time.
