Opryland Hotel Sweet Tea Brined Pork Tenderloin
SWEET TEA BRINED PORK TENDERLOIN
Opryland Hotel Recipe
2 pounds pork loin
8 cups sweet tea
1/2 cup sea salt
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Brining: Whisk together the sweet tea and salt in a large container. Pour into a one gallon Zip Loc bag. Add the pork and brine in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours.
Cooking: Remove the pork from the original Zip Loc bag. Discard the remaining liquid. Blot the meat dry with a paper towel. Whisk the mustard, brown sugar and garlic together in a small bowl.
Put pork loin into a second bag. Close the zipper and shake. This should leave you with an even coat of mustard and brown sugar covering the entire pork loin well. Roast in the oven until done.
