  6. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Brown the pork loin on all sides and then place it on rack in roasting pan. Roast the pork for 1 to 1½ hours or until the meat registers 145 degrees F on a meat thermometer.

  7. Let the pork rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
