Here are a few recipes suggestions
Memphis Style – Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Memphis Pork Rub
Moist, tender and the most wonderful spicy taste.
Prep Time – 4 hours
Cooking Time 25 minutes
1 medium size pork tenderloin
- 4 cups water
- 4 tablespoons table salt
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 to 1 ½ tbsp. of Memphis Pork Rub
Make the brine. Mix well and pour into a large plastic Ziploc food bag. Trim the pork tenderloin of any silver skin, loose fat and membranes. Add the tenderloin to the brine and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.
When the tenderloin is done brining, rinse under running water and pat dry with a paper towel. This will remove the brining salt from the surface.
Roll the tenderloin tightly in the plastic wrap, seal the ends and refrigerate for 1 -2 hours or longer.
Remove from refrigerator, unwrap and rub with the remainder of the rub on all sides and allow to rest at room temp for 20-30 minutes.
Preheat BBQ grill – or oven If cooking in your kitchen. You want a temp of about 500F/250C.
Clean and oil the BBQ grill well. This last step is important or it will stick.
If using a conventional oven, then place the tenderloin in a non-stick or oiled baking dish and follow the rest of the instructions as follows.
Grill for 5-6 minutes per side and then decrease heat a little and continue to flip about every 5-6 minutes until internal temp of 150. About 25 minutes total.
Let it rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting into thick slices.
Serve with pasta salad or baked potato and green salad. Add more salt if required – to taste
Option; serve slathered with BBQ sauce
Memphis Pork Rub – Pork Chops
Outdoor cooking – Barbeque
Indoor cooking – hob top griddle pan
1 pork chop per person
One to eight hours before you plan to cook your pork chops, sprinkle generously with Carolina Barbeque Rub then place them in a large plastic bag, seal, and refrigerate.
Half an hour before you’re ready to cook, remove the chops from the refrigerator and let them sit covered at room temperature.
Fire up the BBQ or heat up the griddle pan, bringing the heat to medium (4 to 5 seconds with the hand test).
Drizzle the chops lightly with oil and place them on the BBQ or grill pan for 18 to 20 minutes total. Turn onto each side twice, rotating the chops a half turn each time to get criss-cross grill marks.
Check for readiness with a sharp knife and ensure the meat is cooked all the way through. Serve with vegetables of choice
Serving suggestion; Sweet potato wedges go very well accompanied by corn on the cob.
