Last week I mentioned that Costco was having a sale on pork with up to $2.50 off boneless pork chops & loins. As promised I stopped by and picked up some ingredients to make an Asian Boneless Pork Loin. I was pretty amazed at the price. I’m not exactly sure what I expected, but when I realized the $2.50 was off the price marked on the package I was pretty shocked. I got the hugest boneless pork loin (almost 7 lbs.) I have ever seen for only $17.21! These are perfect for your holiday dinner this season. I am cutting it in half for my Asian Boneless Pork Loin. Be sure to enter my giveaway for a $50 Costco Gift Card!
Asian Boneless Pork Loin
4 lb. boneless pork loin
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 T. sesame oil
4 garlic cloves chopped
1/4 t. ground red pepper
1/4 t. ground ginger
1 mandarin orange cup (with juice)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl: brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, red pepper, ginger and mandarin oranges. With a knife or fork stab pork loin randomly to allow small pin holes for marinade to soak into meat. Put roast into a ziplock bag with marinade and let soak, turning occasionally, for 24 hours in refrigerator (or a minimum of least 8 hours).
Remove roast from marinade, top with garlic salt and pepper and cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees. You can use marinade as a juice to cook your meat in and then use dripping for gravy. Serve with rice.
Temperature News: The USDA reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees.
