We don’t often eat pork, so when we do we look for local pasture-raised. This simple recipe is an attractive dish to serve to guests and requires very little attention on the part of the cook. You can get this ready to pop in the oven very quickly then go about preparing the sides while it roasts in the oven. Although delicious without the optional step of brining, this technique is very simple to do and improves the texture and flavor. See the recipe instructions for more details.
You can glaze the pork loin with straight maple syrup, but garam masala adds an interesting twist, and you can easily make your own with our Finite Foodie recommended spices. See our simple recipe. Chinese 5-spice takes the flavor in another direction and is a great substitute.
