INGREDIENTS

  • 4 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 quarts water
  • 4 teaspoons cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole black pepper
  • 5 pieces star anise
  • 2 teaspoons Sichuan peppercorns
  • 3 pieces green cardamom
  • 1 bag green tea

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
