      excellent Rita! Fixed a pork loin and used my rotisserie.Great flavor. Served this with boiled red potatoes seasoned with garlic and white truffle oil, and baked butternut squash. Will be making this one when we have our chef friend over next weekend. He will like this!

      This was outstanding!!! OMG! The aroma in the kitchen when it was cooking was to die for!! I could not wait for it to get out of the oven! I made two large pork tenderloins with this brine. I have never brined my tenderloin before and was afraid it would be too salty.... but, this was amazing!!! Thank you Rita for a wonderful dinner!!!!
