How to Cook Pork Loin in the Oven

If you’re unsure of how to cook pork loin, roasting is a great option. And, you actually don’t need to cook pork all the way through. Just be sure it’s cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F, and you’ll have a deliciously tender pork loin roast with a blush pink center!
