 Serves 4


1 1/2 pounds boneless pork top loin

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon rosemary

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup sweet pickle relish

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Preheat oven to 350°F. Brush pork loin all over with oil and set in roasting pan. Rub rosemary and garlic over top and sides of pork and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine relish and mustard in a small bowl and spread over top and sides of pork. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and sides of pork to form a crust. Roast for about 1 1/2 hours or until meat thermometer registers 150°. Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing into 1/4-inch slices.
