Pork Loin Marinated with Balsamic and Rosemary

This  is a really easy lunch or supper dish, the meat is marinated for several hours making it very tender.


  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lb boneless pork loin roast (or similar size)


In a small bowl, mix the marinade ingredients together. Place the pork into a plastic freezer bag and pour in the marinade. Seal the bag, shake to cover the pork and marinate for 3 hours in the fridge.

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Place the pork in a baking dish, season with additional salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, and pour in the marinade. Add 1/2 cup of water, and place in the preheated oven. Roast for about 1 hour (or as per instructions on joint), basting occasionally with the marinade. Remove and let the pork loin rest for 10 minutes before serving. Slice and serve with some of the marinade drizzled over the top.

I like to serve this with mashed potatoes and greens wilted in butter.
For an easy one pot meal, you could place vegetables in the roasting dish along with the joint as per the photo above.
