I like to have fun in the kitchen and play with my food and this recipe just confirms it! A pork tenderloin and an almost empty jar of our candied pickles inspired this dish. The smell while this was baking already had my mouth watering. Once sliced and onto my plate and then after that first bite I knew I had found a tasty way to use that left over pickle brine!
1 pork tenderloin, (I used a lemon herb marinated loin but plain would work fine)
candied pickle brine
Place loin in a sealable plastic bag, add what candied pickle brine you can spare into the bag. Be sure to add all those garlic pieces and any other goodies you find in the brine. Refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours, turning every so often so all is evenly resting in the brine.
Preheat oven 350 degrees. In a baking dish place loin, spoon the brine and garlic along the top of the loin. Place in oven and bake accordingly to package directions. Every 15 minutes spoon brine over loin. When baked to directions on package, take out of oven and cool 5 minutes. By the time you have sliced the loin the brine will have thickened. Spoon over the sliced loin before serving. Be prepared for a tasty flavored loin like you’ve never eaten!
