Re: What do I do with a 7 lb pork loin?! I need recipes!

My family has reached the point they only like pulled pork. I follow Ree Drummond's recipe and put the pork loin/roast in a covered dutch oven with several onions quartered, 1 can chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce, 4 Tbsp. brown sugar, and 2 cans of regular soda. This goes in a 300 degree oven for 6 hours. DO NOT PEEK! At the end of 6 hours, remove, and shred the pork with forks. We absolutely love this recipe. If your family does not like spicy heat, simply adjust the amount of chili peppers used.

Stuffed Loin of Pork

2 cups sour orange juice,

or 1 cup sweet orange juice and 1 cup lime juice

10 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed 1 bay leaf

1 tablespoon paprika

season with what you like, salt, pepper, onion salt or powder.

1 (6 to 7 pound) boneless pork loin, cut lengthwise into 2 pieces,

then butterflied open lengthwise

1/2 pound country ham, thinly sliced

1/2 pound bacon, fried crisp and broken into pieces

3 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced

1 cup pitted prunes 1 cup grated carrots

1/2 cup chopped bell pepper 2 cups brown sugar

1 (7-ounce) bottle Malta, or other sweet dark malt

beer .

In a large glass baking pan or bowl, combine the juice,

garlic, bay leaf, paprika and about 2 teaspoons of your seasons.

Place both pork pieces in the baking pan. Pour the

marinade over the meat, cover and refrigerate.

Allow the meat to marinate at least 4 hours, turning several times.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F .

Remove the meat from the marinade. In a large

rectangular baking pan, lay one of the pork loin pieces flat. Sprinkle the meat with seasons, then spread the ham across the pork, followed by the bacon, eggs,

prunes, carrots and bell pepper.

Place the remaining pork loin on top of the layered meat,

then roll up the two pieces into a roulade, firmly securing with butcher's twine or wooden skewers.

In a small bowl combine the sugar with the Malta and

pour over the rolled pork. Bake until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 170 degrees, about 1 hour , basting with the Malta sauce.

Pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and

bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Set aside.

Remove the roast from the oven and allow to rest for about 15 to 20 minutes before serving with the reduced sour orange juice sauce. This sauce is fantastic over the garlic mashed potato’s.

ENJOY!!!!

That didn't copy very well. Don't know what happened but it's awesome.
