Whole Pork Loin

During a recent trip to Costco, I came upon the deal of the century on whole pork loin.  I Their pork loin is usually a great deal ($1.99/lb), but on this particular day, they had an additional $8 instant rebate!  Therefore, this nearly 8 lb pork loin was just under $8. I usually just buy pork tenderloin at Trader Joes, but at this price, I figured I would give this cut a try.  I did a little research and realized I could butcher the piece of meat pretty easily to make a few meals.  I found inspiration for this here.


I decided to make two roasts and eight boneless pork chops out of the whole loin.

 

So far, I used the first roast to make the Carnitas from Against All Grain’s Celebrations Cookbook and they. were. delicious.  I highly recommend the recipe, but most importantly, I recommend giving the Costco pork loin a try.  If you have suggestions for the other roast or the pork chop, let me know 🙂
