My recreation
7 lbs (approx) pork loin
1 bottle (750 ml) red wine
1 Tbsp ground coriander
1 Tbsp ground caraway seeds
1 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt
5 cloves of garlic smashed

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Lay pork in a roasting pan
  3. Add garlic and spices to wine and pour over pork
  4. Cover and bake until internal temperature is 145 F
  5. Remove pork from the braising liquid
  6. Let rest 10 to 20 minutes before carving

*The original recipe calls to make a sauce out by boiling the pan juices with broth. This step is not included because I don’t make the sauce.
