Juicy Herbed Pork Loin With Currant Sauce

This delicious recipe is actually a combination of three different recipes, with a unique cooking method to keep the loin juicy. When my husband bought a 12 pound pork loin (because it was "on sale"), I panicked! I didn't have much experience cooking pork loin, and I knew that they can come out tough and tasteless if cooked improperly. I cut the loin into three 4-pound portions and threw them in the freezer, while I scoured the internet and cook books for a recipe and cooking directions. Now, this recipe is a family favorite! This would be wonderful for a holiday meal, or anytime you want to create something that will "wow" your family!
