Roasted Pork Loin with apples and veggies, rice pilaf and co

I know this isn't grilling, it was roasted in the oven, but this is what I made for dinner tonight.

Last night I put the pork loin roast in a brine. The brine was a basic salt and water, with brown sugar, sparkling apple cider and pepper. I brined it overnight.

Today I drained the brine, and dried the meat with some paper towels. I seasoned the pork with salt and pepper and then seared each side in a pan with some olive oil. Once it was seared I set the pork aside on a plate and put my onion, garlic, celery, carrot in the pan and browned them a bit. I added a few twigs of rosemary and thyme. Once the veggies were browned I placed the pork roast on top of the veggies and added some slices of apple to the pan, a touch of white wine and popped it in the over to roast. I set the oven to 325.

I pulled the pork out at 140 and covered it in tin foil. I removed the veggies and apples and set aside in a serving dish. I then de-glazed the pan and using apple cider vinegar and sparkling apple cider and a touch of dry mustard. I drizzled the glaze over the sliced pork.

My wife made the rice pilaf.

The corn I added some diced onion, paprika and a touch of cayenne pepper.







and my new knives!

Nice looking pork loin. Did the brine keep the pork loin nice a moist through the cooking? I guess that would be the main reason for brining a loin.

Your knives look very cool. I think I saw some guy in a gang movie with those same Japanese characters shown on the blade tattooed on his neck.

I think it did, the juice was running all over when i was slicing it. The loin was moist but not as much as I wanted. I did cook it a little longer than I would probably have done so, but my wife is pregnant and cannot eat anything pink and I wanted to make sure it was done for her.

It wasn't bad, but it was just a tad overdone for me. It did still taste good in the end.

Looks good to me! How long did you let it sit before slicing?

Well it ended up being about 15 minutes or so since our dinner guests were running a bit late.

Koop - it looks good to me. Let it sit about 25 - 30 min. next time and see if it absorbs more of the juices. Like I said - it does look good to me.
