ROSEMARY & STRAWBERRY BALSAMIC MARINATED PORK ROAST

INGREDIENTS:
 
1/4 C  The Tasteful Olive’s medium intensity EVOO
 
1/4 C The Tasteful Olive’s Strawberry balsamic vinegar 
 
1 tsp soy sauce                                                      
 
2 tsp granulated garlic
 
2 T dried shallots (Penzy's air dried shallots)    
 
1 tsp red pepper flakes          
    
1 T dried rosemary (optional, to taste)
 
1.5 lbs pork sirloin roast
   
DIRECTIONS:
 
Preheat oven to 300F. Either in a blender (recommended) or whisking into a medium bowl, combine all marinade ingredients so that it appears the liquids have melded together and the dry ingredients hang in the mixture.  Place marinade with the pork into a spill-proof container and evenly coat the pork, making sure all sides are hugged by the marinade. Let pork marinate in the refrigerator for between 1-5 hours.  Turn about half way through so all sides get equal love from the marinade.  Place pork onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Place into oven, turning and basting with pan liquids. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C)
