  3. Slice in ½-inch thick slices to serve as a main course, or slice in ¼-inch slices to put on top of French bread for a picnic. Serves 6.

    I have a approx. 6 lb. pork loin I would like to do something with it like your sparerib receipe which was fabulous. Do you think the same marinade would work?

    1. Hi Doris, I have never tested the sparerib marinade with pork loin but something tells me it would be delicious…Please let me know if you give it a try.
