John Henry's Meats Pasture Raised Pork Herb Crusted Pork Loin Roast

Because the pork loin is so lean, you may want to consider bringing it before roasting. To brine a pork loin roast, follow these simple instructions.
In a large bowl, dissolve 1/2 cup salt and 1/4 cup brown sugar in 8 cups of water.
Transfer pork loin roast to brine, making sure to submerge it completely. Cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. The longer, the better!
