Maple-Brined Pork Loin

Maple-Brined Pork Loin


Water 1l

Salt 1/4 cup

Maple Syrup 1/3 cup

Garlic (crushed) 3 cloves

Fresh Ginger (chopped) 3 tbsp

Rosemary (dried) 2 tsp

Black Pepper (cracked) 1 tbsp

Red Pepper Flakes 1/2 tsp

Pork Loin Roast (boneless) 1 kg

Vegetable Oil 1 tbsp

Dijon Mustard 2 tbsp


Mix water, salt, 1/3 cup maple syrup, garlic, ginger, rosemary, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Place pork loin in brine mixture and refrigerate for 8 to 10 hours. Remove pork from brine, pat dry, and season all sides with salt and black pepper. Preheat oven to 165 degrees C. Heat vegetable oil in an oven-proof skillet over high heat. Cook pork, turning to brown each side, about 10 minutes total.

Transfer skillet to the oven and roast until pork is browned, about 40 minutes. Mix 2 tablespoons maple syrup and Dijon mustard together in a small bowl. Remove pork roast from the oven and spread maple syrup mixture on all sides. Cook for an additional 15 minutes, until the pork is no longer pink in the center. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 63 degrees C.
