Spiced Pork Loin

Astra

Ingredients

  • 4 Pounds  pork tenderloin
  • 2 Cups  apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 Cups  sugar
  • 1/2 Cup  salt
  • quarts water
  • 4 Teaspoons  cloves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon  whole black pepper
  • pieces star anise

This loin of pork gets two doses of flavor — the first during the overnight brine, and the second the rub it’s seared and roasted in. Only a few simple steps result in an incredibly delicious and flavorful pork loin that’s great for large crowds and will easily become the star of your holiday meal.

Directions

Blend the all of the spices in a coffee grinder.

Combine ½ cup of spice mix with the apple cider vinegar, salt, sugar, and water, and bring to a boil. Pour the liquid over the ice and when cool, add to the pork.  Brine overnight. Remove the pork from the brine and dry on paper towels. Lightly sprinkle spice mix on the pork. Sear the pork in a large skillet over high heat and finish in the oven at 400 degrees until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees. Let rest for 5 minutes, then slice and serve
