Prep Time:

Cook Time:

1 1/2 hours


8-10 servings


3  pounds  boneless Center-Cut Pork Loin Roast

*  kosher salt & coarse ground black pepper

4  medium  shallots, finely choped, divided

2  tablespoons  olive oil

2  tablespoons  fresh thyme leaves or 2 teaspoons dried

4  cloves  garlic, chopped

1  (14.5 ounce) can  Hill Country Fare Natural Chicken Broth

12  ounces  fresh cremini or baby bella mushrooms, quartered

3  tablespoons  H-E-B Butter

1/3  cup  dry white wine

2  tablespoons  flour

1/2  cup  H-E-B Whipping Cream

*  reserved chicken broth


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place half of the chopped shallots in center of a large, heavy roasting or baking pan. Place roast on a rack over shallots, fat-side up; season generously with salt and pepper. Puree remaining shallots, oil, thyme, and garlic in a food processor; pat over top and sides of pork. Pour 1 1/4 cups broth into bottom of roasting pan; reserve remaining 1/2 cup broth for sauce (see step 4).

Roast pork in oven 1 to 1 1/2 hours Remove from oven when an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of pork reaches 150 degrees F. Make a foil tent over roast; let stand 15 minutes.

Prepare sauce while roast stands: melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over Medium-High heat. Add mushrooms; sauté 5 to 7 minutes or until tender. Stir in wine; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until almost evaporated. Sprinkle flour over mushrooms; stir to blend. Add reserved 1/2 cup broth and juices from roasting pan, including shallots; scrape any browned bits left in bottom of roasting pan into sauce. Cook until thickened slightly; stir frequently. Add cream; reduce heat to Medium-Low and stir until sauce is hot. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Place roast on a cutting surface; cut into thin slices and serve with mushroom sauce.
