The Best Oven Roasted Pork Loin with Potatoes ❦ Lombo de Porco Assado no Forno com Batatas


This has to be my most requested oven-roasted dish recipe. My daughter in law absolutely loves my pork loin and potatoes. This recipe is exactly how my mother used to make...exactly. I have changed nothing. Occasionally, I will use red wine or even beer if I am out of white wine. Same delicious, juicy and succulent results. The potatoes are to die for. Make sure you use roasting variety potatoes. I used Maris Piper, here in the UK, in the U.S.A, I would go for(in order of preference) Yukon Gold, Russets, or Fingerlings.

The UK has been a challenge with potatoes. I find Maris Piper to be my favourite for roasting, frying and mashing. Every other variety I have tried just falls apart. The pork is organic free-range higher welfare pork. A bit pricey, but worth every penny.
