Okay, give me sausage, bacon, ham, a nice shoulder roast and I'm all there all day.
But I couldn't make a pork loin come out worth eating in a month of sundays. Believe me, I tried plenty back when I was into *lean meats* (instead of real food) and invariably failed. Miserably.
Fast forward to my current existence where I would never dream of purchasing plain old pork loin on a dare and I find myself stuck back in my old nightmare. Awhile back my mother lost power at her house while she was away at a conference out of state and I went and emptied her freezer and saved what I could at my house.
When she came back she didn't want to mess with any of it so I ended up inheriting two beef tenderloin, several whole chickens worth of fowl parts, three bags of shrimp, and here in back I discover I also inherited a pork loin. Looks like 3.5 to 5.0 lbs.
This is tomorrow's dinner.
