Herbs to season a pork loin roast can include thyme, basil, garlic, rosemary, parsley, sage, fennel, dill, cumin, coriander or caraway seeds. The herbs can be used to crust the pork before cooking or can be added at the end of the preparation as a seasoning.

Also, the meat can be basted throughout the cooking time with a marinade made with herbs. Spices that can be paired well with the herbs in a pork dish are paprika, cayenne, chili powder and chillies. The pork roast can be cooked in a slow cooker, in an oven, on the grill or sliced up and sautéed in a skillet.
