I also made a pork loin tonight. Whenever pork loin goes on sale I buy two. One gets cut into pork chops and frozen; I slice the other into 3 roasts. It's very easy to make because there is very little prep time.
Here is the raw pork loin getting ready to go in the oven.
To my dutch oven I added about a 1/4 cup of sliced fennel leftover from Thursday night, 8 cloves of garlic (This seems like a lot, but I love garlic, and you really don't notice it), 1 Tablespoon peppercorns, 2 Tablespoons kosher salt sprinkled on the loin. Then I added 1 cup veggie stock and about 2 cups water. I added the lid and let this cook in a 300 degree oven for about 2 hours.
Finished loin, I forgot to take a picture of it sliced and on my plate.
I served the loin with mashed potatoes and gravy. My mom came over to eat, so we had homemade turtles for dessert!
