Thai Basil Honey Roasted Pork Loin Roast


3 pounds Pork Tenderloin
1 tablespoon Thai Basil, chopped
1/2 cup Olive Oil
5 Onions
2 tablespoons Honey
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup Cream
1/2 cup Milk
1/4 cup Jalapenos, minced
1 tablespoon Flour
Sprig of Thyme
Dash Garlic Pepper
Dash Seasoned Salt
Salt and Pepper


Preheat the oven to 400F degrees. Spray the roasting with some oil. Sprinkle little bit of garlic pepper over the pork loin roast. Sprinkle some seasoned salt on the pork loin roast. Cook the pork loin roast with the fast side up so that the juice will go inside the pork loin roast, which will make the roast juicy and tender. Cook the pork loin roast for about 30 minutes or until it is medium rare on the thermometer.

Slice one onion to a separate the rings and set aside.

Soak the onion rings with half milk and half cream mixture. Make sure that all the rings are completely soaked, or rearrange them in a way they all get soaked.

Add pepper and salt to the flour and stir with a fork. Roll the onion in the flour mixture that we prepared.

Fry the onion rings at medium high in a skillet, you can use olive oil or the oil you. Drain on paper towels and set aside to use as garnish.

Slice up both the ends and a section of the onion. The reason for me to slice a section is that the onion will not roll over my cutting board when chopping it.  Chop the remaining onions coarse and put in a bowl and set aside.

Melt the butter; add Thai basil and thyme to the butter and stir. Now add the chopped onion a little at a time and stir. You don’t want to add all the onion at once or it will ‘sweat’ and the onions won’t caramelize.

After allowing the onions to cook until they are translucent, add honey to the mixture. Turn the heat to medium low and allow the mixture to cook for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the onion starts to take some color, add the jalapenos. Let the mixture continue to cook for about 10 to 15 minutes.

The onion mixture is cooked, with honey adding a hint of sweetness to the mixture; jalapenos and Thai basil add a hint of spice to give it a different twist.

The pork loin roast is now out of oven and it is completely cooked. Allow it to rest for 10 minutes and slice approximately 1/2″ thick.

Take slices of the roast, top with the onion mixture, add the onion rings and place a piece of Thai basil to garnish.

The Thai Basil Honey Roasted Pork Loin Roast is ready to serve!
