Surprisingly, we found that the ideal method for our roast pork loin recipe involved allowing the roast to rest on the counter between sessions in the oven. By doing so, the middle of the roast gently heated by means of conduction—that is, the heat absorbed by the outside of the roast penetrated the interior portions as it rested. A return to the oven at a lower temperature finished fully cooking the roast through the center without overcooking the exterior portion in our pork loin recipe. The result was tender texture and the least juice loss.

Serves 4 to 6

A thin, flat pork loin roast will overcook. To avoid this overcooking, tie the roast yourself, or have the butcher perform the task for you.
