Grilled Pork Loin

Grilled Pork Loin

Ingredients

  1. 1 Pork Loin, any size
  2. for the marinade:
  3. ½ cup soy sauce
  4. ½ cup worcestershire sauce
  5. 2 tbsp honey
  6. 1 tbsp mustard
  7. 2 tbsp olive oil
  8. 2 cloves garlic

Method

Mix all marinade ingredients with blender (I use an immersion blender). The mustard emulsifies the marinade.

 Place in zip-lock bag with the meat for an hour or two. Refrigerate.

If you have a larger loin, you may need to increase the quantities of the marinade. [These are very loose measurements; I don't measure at all, but just eyeball quantities, so these quantities are guesses. I often vary the marinade ingredients and rarely do the same thing exactly twice. So use whatever you have on hand that seems like it would be good--it probably is.]

Cook on medium-hot grill until interior registers 140ºF. (Time is dependent on thickness.) Don’t overcook or it will dry out.

Keep a close eye on it, and turn frequently, or the surface can burn easily. I use a gas grill with 3 longitudinal burners, and cook it in the middle, with just the outside burners going, so it has indirect heat coming from the 2 sides. If I were using a charcoal grill, I would push the coals to one side and cook indirectly.

The pictures here show a perfectly done loin. Perfect. This was a relatively small loin and cooked for maybe 15-20 minutes total.
