Ingredients:

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
Salt and seasoned pepper, to taste
2 pounds boneless pork loin roast

Method:

Preheat oven to 350°.
Using a mortar and pestle, crush garlic, rosemary, salt  and pepper, making a paste.
With a sharp knife, pierce meat in several spots and press the garlic paste into the openings.
Rub the meat with the remaining garlic mixture.
Transfer the pork to a rack in a roasting pan. 
Roast, uncovered, for about 1 hour 15 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer registers 145° to 160°, or until desired degree of doneness.
Let roast 10 minutes on cutting board before carving.
Serve
