Enter the weight and recommended cooking time per pound into the calculator to determine the total cooking time for a pork loin. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Pork Loin Cooking Time Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the cooking time for a pork loin.

T = (W * R)

Variables:

• T is the total cooking time (minutes) W is the weight of the pork loin (pounds) R is the recommended cooking time per pound (minutes per pound, typically 20 min/lb at 350F)

To calculate the cooking time for a pork loin, multiply the weight of the pork loin by the recommended cooking time per pound. The result will be the total cooking time.

## What is a Pork Loin Cooking Time?

Pork loin cooking time refers to the duration required to cook a pork loin until it is safe and ready to eat. The exact time can vary depending on the cooking method, the size and thickness of the pork loin, and the desired level of doneness. However, as a general rule, pork loin should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit, which usually takes about 20-30 minutes per pound when roasting at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

## How to Calculate Pork Loin Cooking Time?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pork Loin Cooking Time.

1. First, determine the weight of the pork loin (W) in pounds.
2. Next, determine the recommended cooking time per pound (R) in minutes per pound.
3. Next, gather the formula from above = T = (W * R).
4. Finally, calculate the Pork Loin Cooking Time (T) in minutes.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with a timer or cooking instructions.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

Weight of the pork loin (W) = 5 pounds

Recommended cooking time per pound (R) = 20 minutes per pound
