Pork Loin with Garlic Mashed Potatoes


We had a wonderful supper tonight.  Laura had a pork loin and wanted me to do something with it.  A friend of mine used to own a restaurant and told me that there signature seasoning for meat was a simple combination of Kosher Salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder in equal parts.  This is an awesome seasoning for any meat and even homemade fries.  If you go to applebees this is the same seasoning they use on fries.

Pork Loin

Cut 1/2 inch thick and lay on a oiled baking sheet.  I use PAM so they don’t stick.

Season with equal parts of Kosher salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder coating both sides.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Turn meat and then put under broiler for 5 minutes.  Turn and broil 5 more minutes.  Check for doneness.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Peel potatoes and cut into chunks then rinse and put in cold water.  Add 1/2 head of garlic cloves and 1 T of Garlic Salt.  Bring to boil till potatoes are tender.  Drain water and reserve for soup stock.  Add 1/2 stick butter and milk and mash.


Laura served this with some creamed peas and it was a delightful dinner.

MMMMM!  My tummy is happy!
