Marinated Pork Loin
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + marinating Broil: 20 min.
Hi Annecooks,You're correct, a whole loin does weigh 5-7 lbs however you can generally purchase a 2 lb roast from your local meat department which is perfect for 4-5 servings.Hope that helps.Sue StetzelOnline Community ManagerTaste of Home Magazine
This recipe is for pork tenderloin, not a pork loin. A boneless pork loin weighs 5-7 pounds.
My family loves this recipe. I don't usually broil it quite as long as it says. It is always moist and has great flavor!
The marinade goes together quickly and easily, and I like the fact there is no oil in it (less flare-up on the grill). A typical whole pork loin weighs 5-6 pounds, so this recipe actually uses less than half a loin. Cooking 1" loin steaks 10 minutes per side will yield well done steaks, about 175-180° internal temperature and a bit dry. 7 minutes per side will hold the moisture much better and give you a safe 145° medium to medium-well. These steaks end up a cut above the average, yet not necessarily something I'd use as a centerpiece or signature dish. Yes, I will make it again - probably a few times per year, because it is easy, quick and tasty.

Tried this out for a dinner party with a few friends. Because I buy what looks best and is cheapest, I opted for pork sirloin steaks (SUPER thick cut) instead of pork loin. I only marinated for a few hours, but the steaks were delicious. These steaks were nearly 2" thick, and they took nearly 40 minutes to cook, on "low broil" for probably 25 minutes, and then "high broil" for about 15 (time split between the sides, basting in between.It was my first time to play with broiling meat, and this recipe is definitely a keeper.
Easy to prepare, extremely flavorful, and easy to plan an entire meal around.
