Speaking of grilling, If I prepare it, my hubby Keith will fire up the charcoal -- even in ice and snow. The guy is a grilling maniac -- and he's good! This recipe can be grilled outdoors or on a grill pan in the oven if you prefer. It's maddeningly delicious and guess what -- waaaaaaaaaaaaay easy! The only thing you have to remember to do is to start it the day before you want
to grill it. This is easily a triple Emeril "BAM!" Once you've tasted it, you'll
want it again..and again! But sorry -- gotta get your own grillin' guy! Keith's
Now -- the notes: First off, please use real apple juice -- it's like sinful or something to mix kiddie apple koolaid with good brandy -- know what I mean? Second, I can not do "hots" so no way did Emeril's Essence get on my pork. Cayenne did not make it into my marinade either. I used a McCormick grill seasoning for steak and that worked beautifully. It's pretty much the same as Emeril's -- just no hots. But for all you folks who like a kick to your food -- the Essence recipe is included. Just
remember that you can also buy it in the spice aisle of your grocery store. Third --
if you're like me and want to stretch a buck -- carve your pork thinly. It will last longer and an added plus is that it will make fantastic sandwiches the next day! Finally -- Emeril suggests using a true pork loin rather than the tenderloin because he says it stands up better to the grill. I used a large tenderloin because we just like it better and it cooks a bit faster. We don't have a fancy grill -- it's just your old trusty charcoal deal with a little lid. However, you cook it, just make sure the interior temperature is right before you chow down, ok?
