Last night I decided to take a crack at pork again... And finally with success!

I have been cooking for 18 years but one of my biggest hurdles has always been pork, in all it's forms.  Chops, loins, roasts, all have ended up... well... Meh.  Not great, sometimes good, but never really more than 'Meh'.  Now yes, I know that my "Greatest Accomplishment" in my profile was a pork loin that I had made, but trust me, that had to have been a 'one-off' since I have never had much success since, until yesterday.

I used the inspiration from another rub recipe to change and adapt to something that I though that my kids and wife might enjoy.  We had a pork loin thawed in the fridge just waiting for me to take a stab at (no pun intended).  It worked!  It worked so well that I even typed it up and submitted it!

I strongly suggest you give it a shot too - change it to your taste - because trust me, my father always told me, and I live it to this day, "A recipe is only a suggestion"!

But until next time - Keep Cooking!

My husband always says " Success is just an experiment away."

Love pork.....but I have found that many of the leaner cuts are a bit tasteless these days. I frequently brine the lean cuts to bring out the flavor of the meat. The fatty cuts like shoulder or butt are wonderful but of course they do have so much fat (that's what makes them good) Now you made me hungry. Ribs tonight!

About Me
I have learned to cook from my father from about the age of 12. As the years passed my ability to cook advanced. I now reside in St Augustine, FL with my lovely wife Carrie, our son Bryce and our daughter Olivia. Everyone loves it that I love to cook and do it as well as I do.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook bread. I have just started to really get into bread baking but I have loved it each time I try another loaf. I am a huge advocate of wanting to force myself to learn something new - even if it's territory that has been threaded for decades before me it's a craft I still want to learn.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family's biggest tradition comes during the winter time. Every Saturday, when snow was still on the ground my dad (or I) would wake up early and cook a mound of "German Pancakes", a simple fried pancake, but still to this day, brings back fond memories of the good-o-days.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas Eve Dinner 2012 - I made a slow cooker turkey breast with homemade turkey gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, Italian oven roasted Brussels sprouts and crescent rolls. It was a timing nightmare but it was all worth it once it was done!
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy would have to be from when I first started to cook solo after my wife and I had first moved in together. I made a drastic rookie error. I finished frying some breaded pork chops and not thinking I emptied the still hot pan of oil right into the sink where there was a pool of standing water sitting by the drain... The oil erupted back at me landing on my arms. It took about a week for my burns to heal. The chops were good though!
