A Garlic Lovers Dream

So, this meal is garlic heaven! The meat is going to be cased in garlic and herbs and then the potatoes are going to be garlic loaded! I will be writing about the potatoes recipe into another Hub because it will be too much for me to put two recipes into one.

As, a side note, because I don't want this blog so short, I will talk about some of the cooking items that I use. They might not be for everyone or even in everyone's budget, but think of this maybe as a review even.

First, is the cutting utensils. Now, before I started writing for this site, or even started selling for Lindt Chocolates, I sold for CutCo. Since I worked for them, I don't ever want to use another set of cutlery again. They are probably one of the most sharp knives you will ever use. They also come with a lifetime warranty (This is not a sales pitch. I will NEVER work for them again). They have handles made from a material so they can be on the stove and not melt or burn you. Price wise, they are not in everyone's budget but they do hold their value and that warranty is worth it alone.

Another product I like to use is Pyrex cookware. Easy to clean, and very sturdy. I can not count how many times I have dropped that glass pan and never a chip, crack, or break. I am not by any means saying it's unbreakable so do NOT go trying to drop to the ground.

One that I think most people will agree on is anything Nonstick! It is one of the greatest creations, especially for someone, like me, that does not have a dishwasher and has to hand wash everything! Nonstick is a life saver!

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour 10 min
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: Can have different cook times


  • 2 Pounds Pork Sirloin Mini Roast
  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 Teasponn Pepper
  • Sprinkle Salt
  • Sprinkle Goya's Adobo
  • 3 Tablespoons Minced Garlic

How I do it

  1. In a plastic container, place the roast. pour the olive oil over it.
  2. Sprinkle the onion powder, garlic powder, Adobo, salt and then add the pepper.
  3. Take the minced garlic and spread it across the top of the roast so it covers the entire top.
  4. Then take the Italian Seasoning and spread across the top, on top of the garlic.
  5. Let sit for 30 minutes to let the garlic juices absorb into the meat.
  6. After 15 minutes, Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  7. At the 30 minutes point, grease a glass oven pan, place the meat on it, and make sure you pour the left over oils, juices from the plastic container, onto the meat, and place in the oven for 1 hour.
  8. Check on it around 45 minutes into the cooking time and look for any pink. Most times, you will want a light coloring on the meat. Pink will tend to mean not done.
  9. Once done, cut and serve/
