Marinate a day ahead; this is best on the BBQ. Serve with salad, a nice dinner roll, and grilled vegetables. Yum.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove pork loin from the bag and sear on the preheated grill, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Move to indirect heat until cooked through, 20 to 30 minutes more, depending on thickness.

This was easy to prepare but be aware of time needed to marinate. I did not have the Sambal Oelek on hand when I did the marinate so had to add latter (this may have made that flavour more dominant) Very good taste very tender Served with rice pilouef. Left overs were just as good reheated the next day Read More
