Mark's 'well' Seasoned Pork Loin....
Good pork loin is not too hard to find these days even given the current crisis event. Our health and well being requires that we eat good food and its still readily available. Some one said that to me once not so long ago that they don't have any good food near them; there's only an Aldi. I told them that I shop there for most of my groceries.
Here in the US, we can count on our food products being of good quality. And, good food is not expensive. Sometimes, we just don't consider that a package of chicken, pork or beef is as much or less at times than a big bag of chips ... Doritos i.e. Another problem is that a lot of folks just don't want to cook, don't have time or don't know how.
Cooking at home is a pleasure and relaxing and you get what you 'ordered' just the way you like it. At least that's what I appreciate about home cooking and Mark does too.
Mark's pork loin is just two ordinary 'good' ole pork loins seasoned the way Mark likes it... spicy! Mark first drenches the loin in olive oil and an apricot infused vinegar which is quite thick. If you don't have such an item then use any balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of honey.
Next, the spices. Mark uses: 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp paprika, a dash of cayenne pepper and sea salt along with dried herbs: rosemary, oregano, mint with a hint of lavender. Then pop into the oven and cook until tender and juicy... finish in the broiler for a slightly crispy top.
Prepare any side you like and prepare to enjoy!
