Costco Pork Loin
Posted on August 7, 2012
After preparing the kababs on Sunday. I went straight into making a brine for the pork loin’s we enjoyed last night. Quick back story…I made pork loin’s before when Ash went out of town…I just do not know if I truly like pork, the thing is though…steak gets boring after awhile, so it is nice to mix it up.
Making brine for pork loin is simple:
- fill a pot with water 3/4 full
- Add half a cup of salt
- half a cup of brown sugar
Bring to a boil
- add pepper corns (just under a handful)
- bay leaves
- spices (your pick…)
Let simmer for about 8 minutes
Then let cool down till at least room temp if not colder. Combine the liquid and the pork loin together into a ziplock bag and leave over night 12 to 24 hours in the fridge.
When you are ready to cook. Pull the bag out of the fridge and let sit for about 1 hour. Next remove the pork loin and dry off.
Make your own dry rub for the loins.
How long to grill a pork loin. Basically…I did about 8 minutes per side (yes there are 4 sides). My only downfall was I cooked on top of foil…which added no flavor or sear. The pork was fine…but was just missing that element.
I’ll cook steak next.
