Ingredients

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup salt

1/4 cup bourbon

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons peppercorns

2 quarts water

2 pounds pork loin

5 tablespoons butter

4 garlic cloves, minced

Directions

  1. Combine all of the brine ingredients in a large container. Add pork loin and let it brine in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. Brown the butter in a small pan over low heat. Combine the bourbon, honey, garlic, and soy sauce in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Preheat a grill to 450 degrees F.
  4. Remove the pork loin from the brine and cut it, lengthwise, into quarters. Grill the pork strips until the internal temperature reaches approximately 120 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch sections. Reheat the browned butter over medium heat and add the pork. Stir in the bourbon mixture and saute until the pork reaches 155 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Transfer the pork to a serving dish and serve.
