This is one tasty and EASY recipe! I drizzled mine with some honey, and served it with a nice spinach salad and glass of sangria. SO summer-y and delicious! Might I say…I really do think this is a restaurant quality dish. It’s so different and really, foolproof.
You can mince the garlic and fine as you like- I left mine a little chunkier but it would also be good if you ran it through a food processor and made a paste.
You’ll mix your crust together to form a paste- like I said though, chop your garlic to your liking and it will be great either way.
Cover your pork loin with the brown sugar and garlic mixture- I purchased my pork loin at Trader Joes, it was relatively inexpensive, $7.50 I think. We tend to eat a ton of chicken so it was nice to mix up our routine. My husband went absolutely nuts for this Pork Loin– I think it’s the salty/sweet combination that he really enjoyed!
Make sure to pat your pork loin with a paper towel- it helps really get a nice crust on it. Bake it for 30-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees and you’re good to go!
