This recipe is for the TRUE garlic lover! Start this recipe 1 day in advance to allow the pork loin plenty of marinating time. (Start 2 days ahead if brining - good brine recipe on this site) I often use this pork as part of an appetizer party, although, it could be a main dish. It is always a hit.
