How to make it
- In a large pan, mix together water, salt and sugar. Cook over medium heat until salt and sugar have dissolved. Add bay leaves, garlic and pepper corns.
- Cool brining mixture in the fridge until room temp or cooler.
- Place pork loin into brine in a container or ziploc bag that allows the roast to be completely submerged.
- Allow the roast soak in the brine at least 8 hours, or overnight (overnight is better).
- Preheat oven to 350oF.
- Remove the roast from the brine and pat dry.
- In a non-stick pan, heat oil over medium high heat until shimmering.
- Add the pork loin to the pan and sear on all sides, allowing a nice brown crust to form.
- Put roast into a roasting pan. Cook until internal temperature registers 140oF (approximate an hour to an hour and a quarter).
- Allow roast to rest under a foil tent, approximately 10 minutes.
- Slice thinly and enjoy!

A winning recipe! I prepared it exactly according to the instructions except that I baked the pork to 160 deg. instead of 140, per the instructions on my meat thermometer. I also brined it a full 24 hours. It came out moist and full of flavor. Serve...moreElizabethA in Orange County loved it
