Pommies Grilled Pork Loin with Fresh Thyme

Pommies Grilled Pork Loin

Although it may not look like it...it is spring out there! Time to get out the BBQ and commit some time to this pork loin recipe for all you pork lovers out there. Pommies and pork seem to go very well together, so try it out and be your own judge!


2-3 bottles of Pommies Dry Cider as needed
1 (2 to 3-pound) boneless pork loin
2 tablespoons of light brown sugar
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 clove of garlic (peeled and minced)
Pinch of dry mustard
3 to 4 sprigs of fresh thyme (leaves crushed)
Salt and freshly ground black as needed


In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of Pommies Dry Cider, garlic, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce (stir well). Place pork loin in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.

Remove pork loin from bowl, drain well. Cut pork loin in half with a sharp knife. Evenly distribute half of the thyme over the bottom and top half of the roast. Tie roast together in several places with kitchen twine.

Have pork loin fat-side up. On a grill rack in a barbecue grill, set at the highest level, or at the low to medium setting of a gas grill. Cover and grill for about 1 to 1.5 hours or until golden.

Turn pork loin over about halfway through grilling time. After roast begins to turn golden, season with salt and pepper for taste and season pork with remaining thyme sprigs.

Transfer pork loin to a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil and bring foil up around sides of pork, leaving the top open. Sprinkle additional Pommies over pork; moisten roast with Pommies frequently.

With a sharp knife, remove any fat from roast. Allow roast to stand at room temperature for a few minutes, before you serve. Then cut as needed. Garnish with additional sprigs of thyme as desired.
