About once a month, I buy a whole pork loin from Sam's club. I part it into one roast, 12 1/2" chops, then use the rest for very thin chops or medallions, stew meat or stir-fry. We freeze half of the chops and the small pieces. I sear the roast over medium heat with olive oil and butter. Once it is nice and brown all the way around, it goes in a medium oven (325 F) for an hour and a half. I always add some root vegetables and water to the pan before putting it in the oven. Delicious served with mashed potatoes, buttered noodles or whatever you have.
I also make an amazing pork chili.
