So this recipe makes me laugh a little every time I make it due to the fact that it is slightly misspelled on the Food Network’s website. In fact, if you are on their site, in order to find it, you have to do a search for grilled pork LION. Ha. The flavorful marinade of garlic, rosemary, lemon, mustard, and white wine used in this recipe makes this pork loin extremely tasty, and easy to make. I would definitely recommend marinating it in medallions. We tried doing the whole loin once, and it was still good, but didn’t absorb the flavors quite as well as medallions. And definitely grill if you are able -you can’t beat the flavor grilling adds.
It sounds like a lot of rosemary, but the flavor really mellows out due to the other ingredients. The only difference I made to the recipe was to omit the oyster sauce, and sometimes if I don’t have chipotle, that will get left out as well. We enjoy eating this with Vigo yellow rice and veggie. Goes really well with the Vegetable Galette too. And as I type this, sweet plantains sound like they would make a tasty addition.
