Pork loin with summer vegetables

Last weekend I put this together, and it was really good:

1 pre-marinated pork loin (any flavor – mine happened to be portobello)
several summer squash, chopped
half an onion, chopped
mushrooms, chopped (optional)
a couple teaspoons olive oil
whatever herbs you have handy
Mrs Dash (optional)

Preheat the oven according to the loin packaging.
In a big rectangular Pyrex dish, spread the chopped vegetables.
Mix in the herbs, and some Mrs Dash if desired.
Spray the vegetables with a few squirts of olive oil.
Lay the pork loin diagonally on top of the vegetables
Bake until the pork is done, flipping over halfway through.
Remove from the oven, cover with foil, and let rest for 5-10 min.

It didn’t require any extra salt beyond what came along with the pork. I thought the juice at the bottom of the casserole was one of the best parts.



  1. Mmmmmmm! That sounds delicious! By the way, the sourdough bread was very good, indeed! I have to work on it, though! I found that it took a lot longer to rise for me than did ‘Harvey’. Too, I probably needed to use more of the starter than I did. But the texture was wonderful and the colour was unbelievable. This is the first sourdough starter I’ve used and I think I’ll be playing with it quite a bit this winter. Thanks!

  2. And how did you use the juice? Rice? Potatoes? Bread to sop it up?

  3. What? Add starch? And dilute the flavor?

    No way. I tipped the dish up and DRANK it!
