Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Heat a large knob of butter in a medium-sized frying pan. Sear the pork loin to get it nicely brown on all sides, then transfer it to a small oven dish.
Lay the sprigs of rosemary and thyme on top of the pork loin and pour the butter from the frying pan over the meat.
Roast the pork loin in the oven for around an hour, until nice and pink. Remove the strings from the pork loin, and cut it into slices.
Serve with a chasseur sauce, Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes. Enjoy your dinner!
