Pork Roast a la Hoover's Sauce

Picked up a boneless pork roast today at The Fresh Market. The butcher said it was a loin, just packaged up in a net to make it look better. :huh:

How to cook it?????

I simmered some olive oil with 8-10 sliced large garlic cloves. I removed the cloves, minced and reserved them. I mixed the garlic-infused oil with equal parts of Hoover's Sauce (a local, secret recipe teriyaki-type sauce sold in a few stores or directly from Mr. Hoover Lee himself). I injected about 2 ounces into the roast, then poured the rest, with the reserved minced garlic into a ziplock with the roast and allowed it to marinate while the egg got ready.
Indirect, elevated cook with a couple of handfuls of dried fig trimmings - 275-300* dome.
Here is the roast, ready for the fire! Added a few turns of fresh ground black pepper just before the grill.
I heated the marinade and did one good basting about 5 minutes before removing from the Egg.
Pulled at 138* internal, foiled and rested while I had a drink with my neighbor.
Sliced and juicy: :woohoo:
Plated with some tomato/basil orzo and a chicken/pesto empanado (both from the The Fresh market Deli :
The roast was tender, juicy and flavorful throughout. I was concerned the Hoover's sauce would be too strong, hence diluting with the olive oil. As a result there was just enough hint of the teriyaki to add to the pork flavor.

Nice meal for me bach'ing it as the wifey is in Arkansas for a few days visiting one of our grandsons.

    Thanks, Molly.

    I'm not used to cooking for just one, so I had a tough time at the store trying to find something interesting to cook.

    I haven't used the Hoover Sauce in a while....

    Thanks, Beli.

    Sometimes a thick pork roast can be sorta bland on the inside. Injecting this one really added some 'punch' to the flavor !

    what a cute sweet baby! and the food's not half bad either!
  • Misippi EggerMisippi Egger Posts: 5,095
    Just treat it like Dales or soy sauce - needs some dilution if used in a long marinate. Kinda strong.

    He has a chicken drumette recipe on his website, but it is for fried ckn.

    Here is a quick Google search link:

    Some people put a couple of teaspoons in ground beef for burgers or a teaspoon added to stove top cooked veggies.

    50:50 Hoovers/oil might be a good starting point.

    Let me know how it turns out!
