This is a real winner for pork loin. It always comes out moist and flavourful. Leftovers are great thin sliced for sandwiches and salads. Goes great with potatoe salad. Tastes great hot or cold! If you really like spicy try adding a slice of jalepeno pepper in eack hole with the garlic.
- 3 3⁄4 lbs center cut pork loin
- 3 -4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
- 2 teaspoons creole seasoning (I use Tony Chachere's Original)
- 1 (12 ounce) can beer or 1 (12 ounce) can chicken stock (just for basting anyway.) (optional)
- Fire up the grill!
- We have gas so I heat it up on High for about 10 min.
- Then turn to low.
- If useing Charcoal sear then cook over indirect heat.
- I use a paring knife to cut slits into the meat on the fatty side.
- Approximately 18 holes (kinda like golf huh).
- Insert at least 1 slice of garlic per hole, I try to get it into the middle of the loin.
- Rub loin on all sides with Creole Seasoning.
- Grill approx 15 minutes, roll it over and baste with beer.
- Continue grilling, approx every 15 minutes roll 1/4 turn and baste with beer.
- Usually takes about 45- 60 minutes (depends on grilling heat) Check with meat thermometer,@160 degrees F remove from heat, cover and let rest for 10-15 minutes.
OMG, is this good chewin'! We no longer have a barbie, so I made creole seasoning with Mizz Annie's Emeril's Creole Seasoning, rolled that hummer around and around in the rub, stuck it in a cooking bag, and put it to roast in the oven, about 325° for approximately 3 hours. Talk about moist and tender! I didn't use beer or chicken stock ... The juices from the meat oozed out, and I got a pretty tasty gravy from them! Oh, I did add a 1/2 tspn. of cayenne to the seasoning mix. Gave the pork a nice little bite! Wonderful recipe, Speedy! I do believe she's a keeper! Laudee
Very Tasty Greffette! I used Emeril's Seasoning since that's easier for me to obtain. I love pieces of garlic cut into the pork loin. Searing the loin is something I also have always done but I used to do that right on my stove before putting it on the grill. This time I decided to try doing it on the grill and it worked great. The beer and pork combo was good. I can imagine making it in the oven would make a good gravy over some garlic potato mashed potatoes or some nice rice. Thank you for a great recipe.
Oh, this was WONDERFUL!! I will admit that I started out cooking it on the grill but it looked like it was going to end up being too dry so I finished up the cooking in the crock pot. YUM!! It was very juicy and it was on the grill long enough to get that great flavor. Thanks for posting this Greffete!
