Roasted Pork Loin Filet with Whole Baby Bella Mushrooms

Weeknight dinners need to be simple and fast.  That’s why this recipe for roasted pork loin filet is one of my favorites.

With less than five minutes to prep, this savory dinner can be in the oven in no time at all.  That frees you up to do more important things, like catching the latest episode of your favorite TV show.

Oh, wait.  I meant to say important things like doing the dishes.

Let’s just say that I’ll let you choose which activity you’d rather do.

The other reason I like this recipe is because of what happens to the mushrooms.  I’m sure there’s a very good scientific explanation for it, but Bill Nye hasn’t returned my phone calls yet, so for now we will simply have to marvel at the mystery of it all.

Anyway, the mushrooms—when baked with their open cups facing upward—slowly fill with the rich juices of the pork and the liquids that are roasted out of the mushrooms themselves.  The result is a dozen or more edible cups filled with sumptuous jus.

(I had to use the French word, because sometimes only French will do.)

The finished dish comes out looking oh-so-rustic yet just a bit fancy.  No one will know you didn’t spend hours on it, so don’t tell them.

I picked up my pork loin filet at Walmart.  It’s a Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet, which means that it’s already marinated for me.  I didn’t have to do a single thing with it other than put it in a pan and roast it.
