I salt and pepper the pork loin, then make a mixture of grainy mustard, olive oil, chopped garlic, and chopped fresh rosemary and spread over the pork.  Then bake in the oven until done.  I serve it with roasted potatoes and whatever vegetable I feel like that day.

2 cans of chunk pineapple, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 4 tablespoons soy sauce.  Cook in crock pot- 4hrs on high or 8 hrs on low.

We either do it in the crock pot with veggies like potato and carrots with some spices and onion soup mix or DH’s favorite, a little olive oil, salt and pepper and grill on the BBQ.

Pixiecat’s recipe is fantastic. It was the one I was going to give, but she beat me to it! That grainy mustard comes in little glass jars, but I forget the brand.

Marinate in soy sauce and a bunch of crushed garlic cloves. Bake and serve with oven roasted potatoes and a fresh salad.

I like my pork loin to have some substance to it and easily slice so I marinate as others mention but sear it before throwing it in the oven.  Searing it keeps the juices in and I’ve found keeps it from breaking apart a lot when slicing.

@jessmex12:  in a bowl without the loin combine your favorite citrus juice, soy sauce, black pepper, a bit of salt to taste, chopped peppers (whatever sort you like and seeded if you are heat sensitive…i love thai chili), crushed garlic cloves, rosemary roughly chopped, onion roughly choped, worchesire souce, and honey (if you used lemones or limes). Marinate for at least two hours or overnight. Take out and bake covered, to temperature, in the oven using a bit of the liquid to glaze.

We buy the already flavored pork loins. Then we grill them. You can also like already suggested throw it in the crockpot with potatoes, carrots and onion 🙂 YUM!

You can make pulled pork with it too, just don’t let it over cook or it gets dry since it’s a leaner cut of meat.

Butterfly it, rub it down with herbs and spices (orange zest/fennel/salt and pepper) and roll it back up, rub it with more spices and tie it up and roast!

You can also get a lovely piece of pork belly and wrap it around and make a porchetta!

cut it up into bite-size chunks

put it in a dutch oven or large crockpot

add the liquid from a large can of chop suey vegetables (two cans if you really are cooking the whole loin), and a couple dashes of soy sauce

cook as long as possible (all day) on low heat, or on higher heat stovetop if you are in a hurry


when it’s getting closer to dinner time, cook some rice

meanwhile, add the vegetables from the can to the pot

when the rice is done, so is everything else

serve pork and veg over rice
