Pork Loin Like I’ve Never Seen – or Tasted!

Published by Rilee Waller on August 14th, 2013

Today, I saw something I’ve never laid eyes on before – the biggest pork loin I’ve ever seen! The thickest end had to be bigger in girth than a baseball bat! I would guess the weight had to be between 2 to 3 pounds. Size is one thing – tasteĀ  is a whole different matter and Glenn came through again. He found a pork loin from a meat packing company out of Chicago that delivers the goods on a tender cut that was delicious.

Collaborating with his flavor partner, Spicy Jo, Glenn seasoned sliced cutlet pieces of this loin with “Sweet & Sassy Garlic Spice” then sauteed them in a fry pan…Mmmmm, were these tasty! I say “were” because they are all gone!! Nestled on a bed of rice pilaf, this pork tasted great. Of course, this pork would also taste great on the grill coated in BBQ sauce, slow cooking or let it marinade in a favorite flavor of your choice and when the cooking’s done, you are in for a fantastic meal!
