    Directions

    Roasted Garlic:
    Ingredients

        * 2 heads garlic
        * 2 tablespoons olive oil
        * Salt

    Pork Loin:

        * 1 (3 1/2 to 4 1/2-pound) boneless pork loin
        * Salt
        * Freshly ground black pepper

    Vinaigrette:

    Roasted garlic, recipe follows

        * 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
        * 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
        * 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
        * 1 teaspoon sugar
        * 1 teaspoon salt
        * 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
        * 2 tablespoons water

    Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

    For the Roasted Garlic:

    Cut the bulbs of garlic in half crosswise into a top and bottom. Place the garlic halves on a sheet of foil, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Fold the foil up and around the garlic halves, making sure they stay flat. Seal the foil into an airtight package. Roast until golden and soft, about 60 minutes. Keep the garlic in the foil and let cool slightly.

    For the Pork:

    Place the pork loin in a medium, heavy roasting pan. Season all sides with salt and pepper. Place the pork in the oven 30 minutes after the garlic has started roasting. Roast until an instant-read thermometer registers 140 to 145 degrees F, about 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the roasting pan from the oven, tent the pork loin with foil, and let rest for 15 minutes.

    For the vinaigrette:

    Remove the garlic from the foil. Remove the cloves by squeezing the base of the garlic. Place the garlic, parsley, and balsamic vinegar in a blender. Pulse the machine until blended. Drizzle the oil into the blender while the machine is running. Add the sugar, salt, pepper, and water and blend until incorporated.

    To serve:

    Slice the pork into 3/4-inch thick slices and transfer to a serving platter. Drizzle some of the vinaigrette over the pork and pass the remaining vinaigrette alongside the pork in a small dish.

    (from Food Network) I love it, it's a great recipe.

    This is an easy, wonderful dish that looks great and goes well with roasted veggies or home fries, green beans almondine or a mixed greens salad (you can make extra of the vinaigrette to go with the salad, or make/buy a complimentary dressing)....a nice bottle of pinot grigio (IMO) goes well.

    For dessert perhaps Tiramisu (my favorite) or some delicious cheesecake...creme brulee is also a nice Valentine's treat.

    OH! And if you get a bottle of wine or champagne (an ideal choice) don't forget some sweet, ripe strawberries and whipped cream for later...wink

      Does it matter?

      Although I think the answers are quite clear...I don't see how it would have any effect on the question.
