I would like to eat a pig

Sooo...

Beloved Wife is out of town on business until Saturday. I cook for an audience, and it is her. But she is Jewish. I have not had pork in quite some time.

Now I'm not cheating, and believe me we don't keep a kosher kitchen, Dear Wife is also from Maryland, so we had a negotiated agreement with the crustaceans from the start. But yes, she doesn't like eating pork so it is anathema in our diet normally.

and I don't care if you like it, Turkey bacon is NOT THE SAME.

Give me one pork recipe, assume I have a functional kitchen, and I don't want leftovers, so no big island style luau stuff.

Mmmm bacon!

Get one of those little one pound pork tenderloins. Cut slits in it, and put slivers of garlic in the slits. Pour a bit of soy sauce on it, then you can put it in the crock pot with some sliced onions, roast it, or grill it.

Have a BLT for lunch every day. Then have pork pizzaiola: a nice pork shoulder steak braised for an hour or so in oregano-forward pizza sauce.

Or a big, thick pork loin chop rubbed with salt, pepper, brown sugar, cinnamon and cayenne. Sear it on both sides, pour maple syrup over it and finish in the oven.

We eat a lot of pork. Actually I think it's my favorite meat. I fix it lots of ways but this is just one recipe that works really well...

That looks really good GG. Two things I would add is to brine that chop for a couple hours. (1/4 cup kosher salt to 4 cups of water)
I'll never eat another pork chop that hasn't been brined or has been cooked to over 145 degrees.

We use beer or hard cider as part of our brine, about half of the liquid. I also throw in a bit of molasses (could use honey) OR brown sugar (light or dark, whatever's handy).

My Jewish husband just said the same thing . No, actually kosher salt measures differently than table salt, so the proportions of salt to water are correct for the brine to be right.
I'm sure glad he eats pork though.
