grilled pork loin with rosemary and olive oil

i have ordered pork chops and pork loin at restaurants in italy while traveling on vacation.  the flavor is so wonderful.....some of it has to be the quality of the meat and the flavor of the olive oil not to mention what ever kind of wood or charcoal they are using to grill.  i set out to try and replicate this at home.  this recipe is so simple you would really not expect it to taste so delicious......give it a try.

i put 2 medium pork loin roasts in a gallon zip lock bag with enough olive oil to coat the whole thing...add a few teaspoons of kosher salt, some fresh ground pepper and a few springs of rosemary.  throw it in the fridge for a few hours.  take it out half hour before you are ready to put it on the grill and get it to room temperature.

i use a weber gas grill.  i sear it on all sides and test it for doneness w a meat thermometer stuck in the end of the roast the long way......take if off just before it gets to medium....i take if off the grill when i get a reading around 155 degrees.  put it on a plate and let it rest for a few minutes.  then slice it at angle like you would a london broil....very yummy....sorry no pictures of this one.
