So, tonight…simple salad, baked potatoes and two pieces of pork fillets picked up from the local grocer (both combined were less than 6 bucks!)
3⁄4 Cup lightly packed light brown sugar
1⁄2 Cup kosher salt
10 cloves of fresh garlic, minced
4 bay leaves, crushed
3 TBS whole black peppercorns, crushed
2 boneless pork fillets (not quite a loin but not quite a chop!), 1 1⁄2 inches thick
In bowl, dissolve sugar and salt in 2 cups hot water.
Add garlic, bay leaves, peppercorns, and 4 more cups cold water, cool mixture to room temperature.
Pour mixture into a resealable zip top bag
Add pork fillets, seal the bag, pressing out as much air as possible, refrigerate until fully seasoned (for about 2-3 hours)
Remove fillets from brine, rinse and dry thoroughly with kitchen roll
Season with favorite dry rub (we still use the Righteous Urban BBQ recipe for our favorite rub!)
Cooking Directions :
Grill over direct heat about 12-15 minutes turning once at 450°F
Let the pork rest for about 5-7 minutes before serving
Great meal, easily done and one more blog entry to drive my brother nuts!
