Step 1

Marinade ... Add the tomatoes, shallots, garlic, mustard, basil, salt and pepper to a small food processor and pulse a few times to puree. Don't over mix. Add a small drizzle of olive oil if necessary, it should resemble a thick paste.

Step 2

Marinate ... Dry off the pork loin and set it on a large piece of plastic wrap. Add the sun dried tomato paste to the pork and rub in well on all sides. Wrap up in the plastic wrap and twist the ends. Make sure the pork is covered very well. I like to set that in a pan and cover again with plastic wrap; or you can put your wrapped pork in a gallon ziplock bag. This way, nothing could drip out and it is sealed air tight. Marinate over night or at least 8 hours.

Step 3

Roast ... Line a roasting pan with foil or parchment paper (for easy clean up), and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Add the roast to the roasting pan and bake on the middle shelf uncovered for 25-35 minutes until the internal temperature is 155 degrees. The cooking time will vary on the thickness of loin itself. Remove from the oven and let it rest covered for 10 minutes before slicing. The internal temperature will increase as it rests.

Step 4

Serve ... Slice and ENJOY!
