Seasoned Pork Loin The mix of spices for the rub is very simple. The flavor they bring out and the simplicity of this recipe are why I use it over and over. Once the meat is cooked, you can use it for pulled pork or just have it as it is for delicious dinner meat. I like to let the pork loin sit in the rub for a day. But if you only have a few hours, it’s still great!

How to Make Seasoned Pork Loin

Test Kitchen Tips We had two small strips of pork loin that were about 1 lb each. After sliced, we poured the natural juices over the pork loin for additional flavor.
