Preparation Time5 min
Cooking Time1 hr 30 min
- 1 (3-5 lb) boneless pork loin
- 1-2 tablespoons garlic salt
- 1-2 teaspoons pepper

- 1 (18-ounce) jar apricot preserves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Rub pork with olive oil.
Sprinkle garlic salt and pepper evenly over all sides of the meat.
Place two sprigs of fresh thyme on top of the pork.
Wrap entire tenderloin in foil, sealing it so that no air escapes. Place the wrapped tenderloin on a rimmed baking sheet.
Bake pork for 20-25 minutes per pound.
When there is only 30 minutes remaining in the baking time, remove the pork from the oven and open the foil wrap. Spread the apricot preserves over the top of the meat and place the meat (uncovered) back into the oven to finish cooking.
Allow the pork to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
