Preparation – 10 minutes

Remove the pork loin from the refrigerator in advance so that it can come up to room temperature. Sprinkle the pork loin generously with salt and pepper.

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.
