Why I Love This Recipe

I tried this recipe from Foodtv's Ingrid Hoffman. I have been dying to try it and boy I'm glad I did. I am on this using coffee in savory dishes kick YUM! Testing out chocolate rubs is next.

Ingredients You'll Need

For the pork loin:
1 cup warm water, plus 1 cup cold water
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons salt
1 (2 1/2 to 3-pound) pork loin
1/4 cup ground coffee beans
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons whole peppercorns
3 whole star anise
1 (1/2-inch) piece cinnamon stick broken into small pieces
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil

For the sauce:
1/2 pound bacon, diced
2 cups demi-glace or 1 package demi-glace mix dissolved in 1 cup water
1 cup red wine
1 cup pineapple juice, from canned pineapple tidbits
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits
1 cup cola


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

For the pork loin:

Combine 1 cup of warm water with the vinegar, sugar and salt in a medium bowl, whisking until the sugar and salt are dissolved.

Transfer to a large resealable gallon-sized plastic bag.

Add 1 cup of cold water and the pork loin, seal, and refrigerate overnight.

Pulse the coffee, brown sugar, peppercorns, star anise and cinnamon stick in a coffee or spice grinder until they become a fine powder.

Remove the pork loin from the brine and pat dry with paper towels.

Rub with the spice mix, transfer the pork to a baking sheet and set it aside at room temperature.

In a large skillet melt the butter with the oil over medium-high heat.

Add the pork loin and brown for 5 minutes, turning to brown all sides.

Transfer the pork to a baking sheet and roast until the temperature reads 160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 1 hour.

Remove the roast from the oven, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

For the sauce:

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the diced bacon until crispy.

Remove any excess fat from the pan and add the demi-glace, red wine, cola, pineapple juice and pineapple tidbits.

Bring back to a simmer over medium-high heat for 10 minutes, until the sauce has reduced by half.

Slice the pork loin and serve with the sauce on the side.
