DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  3. In a small bowl combine the seasonings for the pork; garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper and smoked paprika.
  4. Rub the entire pork loin with spice mixture.
  5. In a frying pan heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. When olive oil is hot place pork loin in pan and sear until all sides are browned; about 2-3 minutes per side.
  6. Transfer pork loin to prepared baking sheet with the fat-layer up.
  7. Place pork loin in preheated oven at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes.
  8. While pork is cooking toss the vegetables along with olive oil and seasonings in a mixing bowl.
  9. Pull pork loin out of oven after 25 minutes and add the vegetables all around it in one layer.
  10. Place pork loin back in oven and cook 25-30 additional minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork loin reaches 145 degrees F.
  11. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and loosely cover with foil. Let rest 3 minutes.
  12. Cut the pork in slices and serve with vegetables.
