Pork Loin Recipe

I recently posted this stuffed pork loin that I did for my S-I-L and a few folks asked for the recipe.  It is pretty simple.

Pork loin
your favorite rub
thinly sliced onion
finely minced garlic
finely minced ginger
1/2 stick salted butter
2 T rub

1. cut the pork loin down the middle and open it like a book
2. dust it liberally with your favorite rub
3. place a layer of thinly sliced onions on top of that
4. then a layer of garlic and ginger
5. close the book and tie every few inches
6. wrap in plastic and put it back in the fridge for about 4 hours
7. cook at 350 until it reaches 125 internally, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on size and thickness
8. begin basting every 10 to 15 minutes with butter and rub mixture until it reaches the desired temperature-- I believe I did 145, about another 45 minutes
9. I let it rest for about 20 minutes before slicing

In the end you should have this...

I liked this one a lot.  It made a wonderful dinner and delicious leftovers.  It is most certainly more savory than some loins I have cooked, but I have found that I prefer savory to sweet.  I also believe that while very tasty on it's own it could be a good starting point for many variations.
