Make Ahead Tuscan Style Pork Roast

I love everything about Costco.  Their food, their books, their shopping carts that fit two children;  It's all good.  I especially love it when they have coupons for things I want to buy anyway.  Like pork roast.  I had been wanting to try this recipe, and when I went grocery shopping this week, their pork roasts were on sale.  Quite serendipitous. 

This roast is so easy to make.  The prep only takes a few minutes, and it can marinate overnight.  It's a great meal to make the night before a crazy day.  Plus, it looks beautiful and tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen. 

The Ingredients
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp Herbes De Provence
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
1 boneless pork loin roast, 4-6 lbs

At Ten O'Clock
In a small bowl, mix together the herbs and olive to form a thick paste.  Score the roast in a couple places.  Rub the herb paste all over the roast.  Place in a roasting pan and cover.  Refrigerate for at least four hours, or overnight. 

Before Serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook meat, uncovered for 45 minutes, or longer if needed.  Roast is done when internal temperature reads 150 degrees, or when the meat is just slightly pink in the center.  Let sit, covered with tin foil,  for ten minutes before slicing. 

Family Approval
So yummy!  This was a great marinade.  The herbs flavored the whole roast, not just the top.  Even the top with all the herbs on it was delicious.  I will definitely cook this again.
