Pork loin recipe for 4 people!

Pork loin, a fabulous piece of meat that is so delicious and easy to work with!

There are many ways to cook Pork loin, and it always comes out delicious.

The controversy about eating Pork goes back to the beginning of time when Pigs were scavengers, eating whatever was in front of them, therefore a forbidden meat!

Things have changed and Pigs are kept in an environment that is good and supervised, also they are fed a mix of grains such as barley, wheat, corn, canola meal, as well as legumes like peas, soybeans or lentils.

No more scavenger hunts!

Cooking it, has to be precise because it has no fat and no bone, therefore it requires attention, overcook it and it becomes hard.

I love to marinate it, and then BBQ for a few minutes on each side. I don’t like my Pork to be bloody I like it medium well, Pork has to be cooked well!

BBQ the whole thing and cut it after, this way it remains nice and juicy.

But today this is a different recipe,  one of my favorites, a crowd pleaser, and the kids love it this way!

It has a little more work but the end result is phenomenal!

 

Here is what you will need!

2 Pork loins, cut in about 2” pieces, remove the silver lining with a sharp knife.

Place meat in a bowl and season meat well with, salt, pepper, garlic salt. Paprika, oregano a touch of sugar, a little olive oil, one onion sliced and a little balsamic vinegar.

Mix well and refrigerate for a few hours.

For the breading, you will need,

2 cups plain bread crumbs and you will use all the dry seasonings you used for the meat + 1 cup chopped almonds. Be generous with your seasonings!

2 eggs lightly beaten

You will dip the meat in the egg mixture and then in the breadcrumb mixture, and fry in vegetable oil until nice and golden turning only once!

This is an amazing recipe, and I hope you like it, for sure a keeper!

You can serve a nice salad and some pasta or rice with it and you have a complete meal!

A meal to please the gods!
